**Fifty years ago, the “New York World’s Fair” opened in Queens. Many who were there returned Tuesday to mark a very happy anniversary.
They lined up by the thousands, just like they poured onto the grounds on this day back in 1964. They carried their World’s Fair identification cards, and so many memories.
“It brings chills to me because it was a very special time in my life,” Gail Fiorelli told CBS 2’s Dick Brennan.
“I grew up dirt poor in Brooklyn, and this was like beyond Disney World to me,” Sheldon Lapidus added.
In an age before theme parks, there were exhibits and rides at the World’s Fair.****
