Jon Sperling, Full Interview
Description: Jon is a lifelong resident of New York and is currently a Biology Professor at Queens College. He briefly discusses his only two memories of the 39/40 World’s Fair –television and the “Highway of the Future”– which he visited when he was three years old. Paul explains that at the time of the fair he lived in Brooklyn and moved to Forest Hills in 1941 where he often visited Flushing Meadows Park. He reflects on his memories of visiting the park after the fair had already been taken down. When asked about his memories of the 64/65 World’s Fair he explains that he doesn’t remember it because he just wasn’t interested.
