ROCKETS AND NEW YORK HALL OF SCIENCE
Two NASA rockets stand 100 feet high (30 meters) outside the New York Hall of Science, a museum that opened a few years after the '64 fair, replacing a temporary pavilion. The rockets were part of a space park at the fair that captured the excitement of the era's quest to get a man on the moon.
Towering over the Hall of Sciences is an undulating concrete building called the Great Hall, an architectural marvel that was an original fair site. Undergoing renovation now, it's due to reopen in October, when visitors will be able to experience the other-worldly interior covered in blue stained glass.
The Hall of Science has undergone a series of renovations over the years and today houses exhibits exploring everything from microbes to the science of basketball. It also has a small but worthwhile display in a second-floor hallway of brochures, tickets and other memorabilia from the fair, along with a first-floor display of photos of World's Fairs going back to the 19th century.
Located at 47-1 111th St. Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., weekends 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; adults, $11, children 2-17, $8.
