Found Photo - NY Worlds Fair

From a collection of photos found at an estate sale. An extensive look at the NY Worlds Fair in approximately 700 images.

 

The Swiss Sky Ride's cables ran between the Korean and Swiss pavilions. The four minute, one way trip covered 1,875 feet, ascended to 113 feet, and offered panoramic views of the Fair. Each gondola, leaving every 12 seconds, carried four passengers.

 

Admission was 75 cents for adults; children 35 cents on weekdays and 50 cents on weekends.
