The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

Lake Amusement Area

This area, located on the tree-lined shore of Meadow Lake, is one of the Fair's smallest, and one of its most lighthearted. It is like a giant variety program. In it are concentrated most of the straight entertainment exhibits - stage shows, exciting rides, beguiling children's attractions, a puppet show and circus performances, wax figures and dancing fountains.
