Faced with a disappointing lack of foreign participants due to political contention, the fair instead showcased the best of American industry and science. While multimillion-dollar pavilions predicted colonies on the moon and hotels under the ocean, other forecasts, such as the promises of computer technology, have surpassed even the most optimistic predictions of the fair.

The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair: Creation and Legacy Reviews

    The subtitle is "Creation and Legacy". So it had lots of pictures of what the area looked like before and during construction, and what it looked like during demolition of the fair. Not so much about what actually went on while the fair was open. Apparently this was the second book about the 1964-65 World's Fair. The first one is New York World's Fair, The 1964-1965 (NY) (which I don't have).

    When I readThe 1964-1965 New York World's Fair , I came out wanting more photos of the Fair. This is the book that gives them. Not only does it provide photos of things the other book doesn't, it also presents images of the models and initial artist sketches and sad photos of the Fair's structures being taken down. I encourage interested people to pick up both books.
