The New York World's Fair of 1964-1965 was held at Flushing Meadows in the Borough of Queens on a site leased from the City of New York. It was conceived in 1958 by a group of New Yorkers who formed a non-profit corporation of some 300 members to provide the start-up capital. Eighty nations participated in the Fair which had the theme 'Man's Achievements in an Expanding Universe'. Robert Moses, who was associated with the earlier World's Fair in New York in 1939-1940, served as the president of the 1964-1965 Fair.
