When I was a kid I went to the Worlds Fair in NYC, Queens, and remember little. But I did get a large isomorphic map of NYC. To this day I marvel at the detail and skill of the people who drew it with a fantastically exaggerated perspective. I still have that map, now with the city so changed from 1964 its almost like the city of this persons imagination, an imaginary city.

Thanks to all those union construction projects...
