Located on the same site as the 1939-'40 New York World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, Queens.

This expo also has the discinction of having not been recognised by the Bureau International des Exposition because it came too soon after the 1962 Century 21 Exposition in Seattle. Because of that, the emphasis was toward more corporate pavilions as opposed to national ones.
