If you're stuck at home like I am, holed up by the icy weather that's sweeping a good portion of the country, why not spend some time browsing through Google's archive of photos from Life magazine?
And if I might offer a suggestion, try searching for "New York World's Fair," which will reveal hundreds of captivatingly nostalgic images chronicling the architecture, rides, pavilions and events from both of the state's expos, held in 1939 and 1964.
- The Trylon and Perisphere, icons of the 1939 fair.
- The Unisphere, icon of the 1964-65 fair, which still stands today in Queens.
- A stunning, art deco locomotive on display.
- Albert Einstein delivering a speech deemed by Life as "incomprehensible."
- A performing orangutan.
- What I'm pretty sure is the world's largest nun.
Enjoy, and stay warm!
