New York City Hosts Its Third World’s Fair
World’s Fairs are international expositions that showcase commerce, industry, and science, as well as providing entertainment and cultural activities.  The 1964-65 fair’s theme was “Peace Through Understanding” and was dedicated to “Man’s Achievement on a Chinking Globe in an Expanding Universe.”
