Gus Schuettler ©Stars and StripesNew York, June, 1964: Visitors to the New York World's Fair pause in front of illuminated fountains and the exhibition's centerpiece, the 140-foot-high, stainless steel Unisphere. Also visible in the background is the Swiss Sky Ride, whose gondolas took fairgoers on an 1,875-foot-long trip more than 100 feet above the grounds. The Unisphere is still there, towering above Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and restoration of the fountains is due to begin later this year.
