Charlotte’s Speakeasy

A speakeasy reopened in Farmingdale a few months ago.

Voici l’Unisphere à Flushing Meadows-Corona Park dans le Queens, New York.  Il était commissioné pour le New York World’s Fair de 1964 à 1965.

I went to the World’s Fair a number of times during the summers of 1964 and 1965 when I was 9 and 10 with my family.  I loved going there.  It was full of interesting exhibits.

Je suis allé au World’s Fair plusieurs fois pendant les étés de 1965 et 1965 quand j’avais 9 et 10 ans avec ma famille.  J’adorais y aller.  Il y avait beaucoup d’expositions intéressantes.
