- The 1964 - 65 World's Fair and the Transformation of America
- By: Joseph Tirella
- Narrated by: Joe Barrett
- Length: 12 hrs and 21 mins
Motivated by the idea of turning Flushing Meadows, literally a land of refuse, into his greatest public park, Robert Moses - New York's "master builder" - brought the World's Fair to the Big Apple for 1964 and '65. Though considered a financial failure, the 1964/65 World's Fair was a sixties flash point in areas from politics to pop culture, technology to urban planning, and civil rights to violent crime. In an epic narrative, Tomorrow-Land shows the astonishing pivots taken by New York City, America, and the world during the fair.
Excellent! Better than the Samuel offering.
