Shea Stadium was among the many attractions that drew visitors to the World's Fair in Queens in the mid-1960s, and we have not seen anything quite like this sign directing people to the venues. This has to be from 1964-65, the years of the Fair, and looks like a great piece of NYC industrial folk art that marries two great areas of period cultural interest. Handmade, hand-painted and one of a kind, blue arrows above black lettering helpfully point visitors to the World's Fair and to Shea Stadium, to the left and right, respectively. A simple, yet significant piece.
