1939-40 New York World's Fair 80th Anniversary -- BHS Presentation @ Bayside Historical Society

Eighty years ago, our borough of Queens hosted one of the most memorable events in history: The New York World’s Fair. A world weary from the Great Depression turned its hopeful eyes to an optimistic view of the “WORLD OF TOMORROW,” and thrilled to the predictions of industrial and technological marvels that an exciting future held in store.

Bayside Historical Society is honored to host a presentation by World’s Fair authority, expert, and author Bill Cotter. Join us for a trip back in time! Bill will be signing and selling copies of his book, “Images of America: The 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair.” Fun memorabilia and souvenirs will be on display!

Cost is free for BHS members and $5 for non-members. Light refreshments will be available.
