I remember the World's Fair in 64/65

We got a few pics. I remember the GM Futurama, the Ford and Chrysler buildings there. As well as the Egg from IBM. I remember the ride thru the Ford one was in a Ford vehicle. Altho I didn't go on most any of the rides-the lines were very long and we only had a day. I guess some of the structures still are left in Flushing Meadow Park (?) The NY state pavilion and the Unisphere.

There're a number of structures & objects left from the '64-'65 fair: The Unisphere, the NY State building, the NYC building (containing the Queens Museum of Art & the Panorama of New York City), the Amillary Sphere & Sundial, The Space Park & Hall of Science, the Arena (I think it's still there), the Heliport, the Theaterama, the Skating Rink, the Marina, the Rocket Thrower sculpture, the Form sculpture, the Freedom of the Human Spirit sculpture...
