The summer of 1939 was an epic turning point for America?a brief window between the Great Depression and World War II. It was the last season of unbridled hope for peace and prosperity; by Labor Day, the Nazis were in Poland. And nothing would come to symbolize this transformation from acute optimism to fear and dread more than the 1939 New York World?s Fair.

Interesting treatment of the development of Flushing Meadows, best in detailing the relationships between the fair and Robert Moses, Mayor LaGuardia, foreign governments, and the police
