The New York World’s Fair ran for two six-months seasons, from April 22 to October 18, 1964 and April 21 to October 17, 1965. More than 51 million people visited the 646-acre grounds in Flushing Meadow Park, Queens. There were 140 pavilions and 110 restaurants representing 80 nations and 24 U.S. states. Among the highlights were General Motors’ “Futurama” exhibit, Sinclair Oil’s “Dinoland,” Ford Motors’ “Magic Skyway” ride and Pepsi-Cola’s Disney-designed attraction, “It’s A Small World.” At the Vatican pavilion, Michelangelo’s “Pieta” was on display and nearby Shea Stadium (seen in the background of the photo below), home of the New York Mets, opened five days before the Fair on April 17, 1964.

Trixie is having trouble falling asleep in this episode. Although it varies considerably depending on the child, most babies begin to sleep through the night when they are about six months old. Some can snooze for six to eight hours at a stretch when they are three months, others don’t doze that long until after they are more than a year old.
