Heliport tops World’s Fair restaurant (Jan, 1964)

Heliport tops World’s Fair restaurant

Helicopters for visitors to the New York World’s Fair will land on and take oft from a foot heliport atop a two-level 1,000-seat restaurant and 400-seat cocktail lounge. The building, which covers the Port of New York Authority’s fair exhibit, is supported by columns at the four sides, two of them housing elevators.

    So every time a helicopter landed, your table would shake and there would be a loud ‘whoop whoop whoop’ noise?

    How pleasant :(

    @ whoozle whaazle – “Waiter, I didn’t order scrambled eggs!”, “Sorry sir, a helicopter landed while the chef was cooking them.”

    So, it was as badly planned as everything else at that World’s Fair. (Which wasn’t even technically a World’s Fair since Robert Moses so insulted the governing body that they refused to endorse it.)
