The 1964 World’s Fair in New York signified the dawn of modern industry and technology and on this video narrated by Bill Moyers, we can truly see how far off our vision of the future was.

The segment features an interview with Robert Moses (Fair Founding Father and infamous Jane Jacobs adversary), pre-EPCOT space rides, and an extended clip of the film shown in the IBM Pavilion, made by none other than Charles and Ray Eames.

Also check out this website with an absolutely ridiculous amount of information, including killer maps of the entire fairgrounds.

Thanks to the love of our lives, TMN, for the link.
