AGENDA ITEM 1
MEMORANDUM:
NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR CORPORATION
TO:
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
1962
FROM: Mr. Moses
suBJEcT: Height of structures at the Fair
At the last Executive Committee meeting on July 11th, I
requested a detern:inalia1 of the policy to be followed by General Potter's
Conformity Committee in passing on requests for variances from
Article X of the General Regulations which provides that,
11
No
building may exceed a maximum height of eighty feet unless a
greater height is specifically authorized in writing. "
The minutes of the July 11th meeting, which will be submitted
for approval at the August 14th meeting, state the
11
sense of the meeting"
in response to my request as follows:
"It was the sensP. of the meeting that, outside of
the Transportation area, every effort should be made
by the Conformity Committee to enforce adherence to the
basic 80 feet limitation on height of exhibit structures,
that permission to exceed such height should be granted
by the Conformity Committe, subject to the approval of
the President, only in exceptional cases for cause shown,
that, in any event, the Conformity Committee shall have
no authority to permit any further structure in any area
to exceed 120 feet in height, and that hereafter per-
mission to exceed 120 feet in height in any area may
be given only by the President and then only for exhibits
of the host country, state or city."
On the afternoon following the meeting of July 11th, Mr. Luckman,
who has been acting on an informal basis as architect for the U.S. Exhibit,
submitted for the approval of the Conformity Committee a preliminary
plan for the U. S. Exhibit, with three pods for exhibit purposes
extending out from a central tower. The floor of the highest pod is
120 feet high and its roof 140 feet high. The central tower--which is
not used for exhibit purposes--is 220 feet high.

TO: Executive Comrni ttee OAT£:

trRoM: Mr. Moses
suaJEcT: Height of Structures at the Fair
- 2 -
In view of this submission, and the proposal of New York State
to have a tower--which is to be used for exhibit purposes--215 feet high,
I deemed it necessary to initiate a full and complete reexamination
of the entire height situation at the Fair, in the light, among other
things, of the need for maintaining proper aesthetic and perspective
balance, avoiding conflict with the flight patterns at LaGuardia
airport, and the helicopter flights of the Fair, and adhering to our
committment to the U.S. Steel Corporation to maintain the Unisphere
as "a distinguished landmark which will dominate the landscape.
11
To that end, I have sought the advice of Austin Tobin and his
staff, the Conformity Committee, our architectural consultants,
Clarke and Rapuano, and others of our staff, and have asked the
architects for the United States and New York State exhibits to present
their proposed exhibits at our August 14th Executive Committee meeting.
You will also have for your consideration at that meeting a profile pre-
pared by Clarke and Rapuano under date of July 30, 1962, entitled
11
Section Showing Height of Exhibits Extending Above 80
111
and two
memoranda on the same subject, dated August 1, 1962, from
Gen. Potter to me, entitled "Height Restrictions" and "United States
and New York Exhibits.
11
I ask each member of the Committee to give his full attention
to this height problem which I believe must be solved on an overall
ba.Sis once and for all rather than being treated in a piecemeal fashion.
Based on analysis of all the submitted data, my recommendation
is that the Executive Committee on August 14th adopt the following for
the inclusion in the minutes as the sense of the meeting:

suBJEcT: Height of Structures at the Fair
- 3 -
"Following the presentations with respect to the
United States exhibit and the New York State exhibit, and the
presentation on height problems by the Executive Vice
President and by Messrs. Clarke and Carruth, consultants
to the Fair Corporation, there was a discussion of the pro-
file of July 30, 1962 showing the height of exhibits at the
Fair prepared by Clarke and Rapuano, the memorandum
dated August 6, 1962 from the President to the Executive
Committee, and the memoranda dated August 1, 1962 from
the Executive Vice President to the President, submitted
to the meeting, concerning height of structures at the Fair
and the heights proposed by the United States Exhibit and
the New York State Exhibit.
It was the sense of the meeting that all actions thus
far taken by the Conformity Committee and approved by the
President with respect to the height of structures at the Fair,
as reflected in the aforesaid memoranda, profile and pre-
sentation, are ratified and approved. It was the further sense
of the meeting that the statement on page 5 of the Executive
Committee minutes of July 11, 1962 with respect to height
of structures at the Fair is amended to read as follows:
'In all areas of the Fair the general policy of the
Conformity Committee shall be to enforce adherence to
the basic 80 feet limitation on height of exhibit buildings
and structures; that permission to exceed the height of
80 feet shall be granted by the Conformity Committe,
subject to the approval of the President, only in
exceptional cases for cause shown and, so far as possible,
only for roof, tower or similar structures not used for
exhibit purposes; that in no event shall the Conformity
Committee have any authority to permit any structure
in any area, including roofs or t o w e r ~ to exceed 120 feet
in height; that hereafter permission to exceed 120 feet

in height in any area for any purpose may be given
only by the President and then only for exhibits of the
host country, state or city; that, inasmuch as the
height of the Unisphere will be 138 feet, and the Fair
Corporation has committed itself to the U. s. Steel
Corporation to maintain the Unisphere as a distinquised
landmark which will dominate the landscape, permission
given by the President for exhibits of the host country,
state or city to exceed the height of 120 feet shall in no
event be construed to permit the top of the roof of any
structure actually used for exhibit purposes by such
host country, state or city, to exceed a height of
135 feet, and any height in excess of 135 feet for a
structure of the host country, state or city shall be
permissible only in the event that such structure is a
tower required to house equipment for the exhibit or to
provide architectural symmetry or proper pefSpective;
and subject to compliance with the aforesaid limitation,
the height of the United States and New York State exhibits,
and the general plans therefor, as presented to this
meeting, are approved.'"

In making recommendations for the above variances to the President,
the Conformity Committee has operated on the basis that the height of
80 feet stated in the Fair regulations should be considered as pertaining
to buildings. Free standing poles, masts and other architectural em-
bellishments have been considered separately in relation to the site and
nearby features. Since buildings are permitted to reach 80 feet, it is
sometimes difficult to achieve an acceptable architectural rendering

without having some feature extend above the roofl.ine. Most exhibitors .
in view of the ground rent have tried to obtain maximum exhibit space and
hence go the maximum height.
General Electric - Request for a 100 foot mast refused because
of objections of IBM, which occupies a near by lot.
Johnson's Wax- Requests 120 foot mast surmounted by a company
symbol. Request not yet granted.
Based on the above, the Conformity Committee recommends that authority
·be granted to change the regulations to permit free standing towers and for
certain important buildings for Lrchitectural purposes and non-occupied
space to have a part of the roof line to be up to 120 feet. This part will
not exceed 15% of the roof area.

Because of the relationship of both exhibits to the Unisphere, and
possible implications of the U.s. S. R. exhibit and others, the prob-

The Unisphere will be 140 feet high. Our lease with U. S. Steel contains
the following paragraph:
"4. Sphere to be Symbol of Fair. The sphere, to be situ-
ated at the Theme Center of the 1964-1965 World's Fair

SUBJECT:
In accordance with your previous approval, we will delegate t.b/
architects and engineers of exhibitors responsibility for supef<Vision
of construction to assure compliance with the building code; however
spot checking Will be exercised by the Fair Corporation. V
In 1960 it was agreed with the Department of Water Supply, Gas and
Electricity that we would give favorable consideration to hiring a
retired inspector from that department for building code electrical
inspection.
We will not need an electrical inspector for such purposes until
about 1 September. However Commissioner D'Angelo has talked
recently of appointing a representative of his own, and i L
on the Fair site1 which could lead to needless trouble. We hav. /
had major difficulties in getting matters cleared with the depa nt J
1 1
and need the best liaison we can get. I recommended that the e be1 VL..-
approved now the employment of Mr. Sheldon Bloomberg,
division engineer of the department, effective 1 August 1962, at a·
salary of $11
1
000 annually.
I have talked tc Mr. Bloomberg, and find him alert and spry despite /
his 69 years. He seerns sincerely anxious to do a good job. He is! j <
recommended particularly by Mr. Lurkis, Chief Engineer of the V
De})artment. Stu Constable and Jack Hennessy give him a good
reputation. Mr. A dam Kopf recommends him highly. I think 1 ;{U
Mr. Bloomberg could be of major assistance to us in a critical ( (... .
area, and tllat his advance approval would aid r.elationships with

1. Since our last report two companies have signed leases for space
at the Fair:
(a) AMERICAN CYANAMID co. (Formica Division): A lease
for 21,774 sq. ft. on Block 5, Lot 1.
(b) CONTINENTAL INSURANCE CO.: A lease, previously under
option, signed for 12, 699 sq. ft. on Block ll, Lot 11.
2. THE S, c. JOHNSON CO. has requested that it be permitted to
abandon its present space (17, 305 sq. ft. ) and instead take
additional space (a total of 33, 206 sq. ft. ) on Block 18, Lot 3.
For a time there was concern about the extent of Johnson
Wax's participation in the Fair, but we are pleased to report
that the Company is now committing itself to more space and
a most unusual building which will be a credit to itself and
the Fair. New lease arrangements are being drawn.
3. The EQ.tnTABLE LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY's legal department
studying lease terms. The President and Executive Committee
have approved Fair participation at Block 9, Lot 7.
4. We have assurances from J. Walter Thompson, advertising agency,
for SEVEN-UP (as well as the Fair), that SEVEN-UP is
taking 35, 000 sq. ft. on Block 18, Lot 4. Lease negotiations
are proceeding.
5. The following companies are also showing an active interest in Fair
participation:
(a) GENERAL MILLS Our trip to Minneapolis with Mr. Motley
to see General Rawlings, President of General Mills, resulted
in a visit to the Fair by Mr. Crabtree, Director of Public
Relations, and Mr. Platies, Director of Cereal Division, and
several representatives of Dancer, Fitzgerald & Sample,
advertising agency for General Mills. General Mills now is
very interested in finding a way to participate in the Fair;
we've scheduled a trip to Minneapolis next week to determine
an exhibit and a site.

is still considering a revival of the Time Capsule of 1939 for

7. We have had discouraging news from the following:
(a) COCA-COLA - which considered sponsorship of Disney's
Hall of Presidents, has decided not to invest in such an expense.
(b) LEVER BROTHERS - It appears that they have turned down the
idea of a separate exhibit.

by management there is no hope of a Quaker exhibit at the Fair.
(d) Other companies which seem to be out of the question, after
several attempts at sustaining interest, include: Allied Chemical,
General Cigar, Procter & Gamble, Pillsbury, Koppers, Mutual
of New York, Portland Cement Association.
8. Finally, we are pleased to report to the Committee that previous reserva-
tions by Rheingold concerning participation in the Fair have now been
converted to a decision to remain on its present site, and only the question
of how to exhibit remains undecided.

Mr. Constable and I have been negotiating
with Messrs. Gottlieb and Lippert on an
auto thrill show featuring precision
driving which they would sponsor in the
Transportation Section. This show would
be similar to the one put on by Goodrich
in the 1939a40 Fair.
Messrs. Gottlieb and Lippert have agreed
to pay the Fair ten percent of their
gross revenues with a minimum guarantee
of $750,000. Of this amount, they will
pay $ 1 7 5 ~ 0 0 0 upon the signing of the
lease, which we anticipate will be in
the early fall.
Eastern has engaged an architect to
study the proposed exhibit which we pre-
sented to them. They are also consider-
ing an alternate plan of their own.
Hm-sever, their very serious strike has
temporarily diverted their attention
from the Fair,
A Lease Agreement was signed with
Mr. Robert Thatcher, President of Trans•
portation & Travel Pavilion, Inc. on
June 18. Construction is scheduled to
commence on October 2,
The Transportation & Travel Pavilion
recently announced the signing of a firm
lease with Allied Van Lines.
Messrs. Briggs and Crane, the developers
of the Marine Center, have begun a pro- .
motional campaign to attract participants:
in this multiple exhibit venture. This
campaign will continue throughout the
summer and will culminate in the Chicago
Boat Show scheduled for next September.
Mr. Briggs has advised us that the Out•
board Marine Corporation, which dominates·
the pleasure boating field, is very
desirous of taking a major role in the
Marine Center.

A new development has occurred in the
Aerospace picture. One of the major
difficulties that has plagued us from
the very beginning has been the reluc-
tance of any organization to assume the
leadership of this project. In an
attempt to fill this void, a group of
people from within the industry have
formed a new organization called America11
Interspace, Inc. This group has already
done a good deal of groundwork a n ~ is
now actively engaged in soliciting indus-
try support for a major aerospace exhibit
We are extending our full cooperation to
them in the hope they can bring this
project to fruition. Commissioner
Patterson is arranging a meeting with
NASA to discuss their possible partici-
pation in an aerospace exhibit.
Stuart Constable, Erwin Witt and I met
with Messrs. Maino and Brion of Greyhounc
and reached a tentative agreement on the
rental payment for an exhibit within
Greyhound's operating and maintenance
area. This agreement is now being incor·
porated into an appropriate document by
the World
1
s Fair legal staff.
With the announcement that the Olympic
tryouts will definitely be held in New
York, we have intensified our efforts
to find a sponsor for the Stadium.
Atlantic Refining is still definitely
interested in the proposition as are
Goodyear and B. F. Goodrich.
On more than one occasion, Goodrich has
reached firm dec is ions not to participat•
in the Fair. However, recently, we met
with Ward Keener, President of Goodrich
and he agreed to take one more look at
the Fair; and to assign a senior execu-
tive to the task. Following up on this,
we presented Goodrich with several
alternative exhibit ideas and then
brought their VP of Marketing, Mr. Don
Miller, out to the Fair grounds for a
briefing. Because of Goodrich executive
vacation schedules, a decision, even a
preliminary o n e ~ cannot be expected be-
fore mid-September.

Following up our recent meeting with
Mr. DeYoungp President of Goodyear, we
have been in constant touch with his
staff. They have displayed considerable
interest in the Sports and Special
Events Stadium. However, they are still
disappointed over the Carveyor.
SKF has signed its lease and delivered
it to us along with the first install-
ment of rent. The lease is now being
processed for execution on behalf of
the Fair.
An exhibit devoted to promoting safe
driving is being developed in colla-
boration wi.th Mr. O'Connor, District
Attorney of Queens County. We have met
a number of times in the past few
with Mr. O'Connor and members of his
staff to work out plans for its sponsor-
ship. At present the Tidewater Oil
Company has expressed interest in parti-
cipating in this exhibit. We expect to
line up additional sponsors who are
interested in motoring safety.
After innumerable contacts over an
extended period we have finally convinced
the Socony Mobil promotion staff to
favorably recommend an exhibit, even
though their present plans are very
modest. They are • on a detailed
recommendation to be presented to their
top management.
The operator of the successful Aviation
Grill in the 1939 World's Fair is
desirous of putting on a similar venture
at the Fair. This time he would like to
call his restaurant the "Century Grill
International". We are working with
Mr. Constable's staff in finding a
suitable location for this concessionaire.

Pursuant to authorization from the Executive Committee,
the Fair Corporation is presently negotiating an agreement with
United Press International {UPn whereby UPI will take still pictures
for the Fair Corporation and for those participants desiring UPI's
services. The staff believes that a similar arrangement should be
made with regard to the provision of motion pictures of the Fair.
After contacting several organizations in the news motion
picture industry, a proposal was made by Hearst Metrotone News, Inc.
Hearst would be designated as the "Official World's Fair
Motion Picture Photographer" and would agree to take, process
and provide to the Fair Corporation motion pictures of Fair related
events as requested by the Fair Corporation. For work done for
the Fair Corporation Hearst would be paid on the basis of cost
plus 20%.
Hearst will be permitted to solicit business, on a non-exclusive
basis, from participants and will agree to pay to the J:t""air Corporation
20% of its gross receipts derived in connection with such business.
The Fair Corporation will provide to Hearst without charge
certain storage, loading and equipment space at the Fair site.
It is anticipated that Hearst will, through its usual news :film

be able to give broad coverage and wide exposure of Fair events.

They are not interested now in leasing ground from the
Fair Corporation and having an exhibit. They want
to take space in two or more multiple-exhibitor buildings,
but still pay us 5% of gross revenue with a payment
of $10, 000. on signing and $160, 000. within a year from
signing. There is doubt whether or not Data Patterns
is able to fulfill such an agreement.
THE POLAROID CORPORATION
Herbert Ochshorn of Grayson-Robinson met with Stanford

Ochshorn was told by Calderwood that Polaroid had

Dear Commissioner Moses:
In accordance with your memorandum or January 25, 1962,
I am submitting herewith the following report on the various
exhibits and/or concessions tor which we are responsible.
1. Chun K1De - Mr. Paulucci has decided to increase
his area :eo 40,00 square feet tor his medium priced Chinese
garden restaurant which will include eating patios and
gardens with reflecting pools. Mr. Mundt, Mr. Paulucci •s
attorney, visited the site on Wednesday, August 1. Mr. Mundt
advises us that Mr. Paulucci hopes to sign the lease before
the end or this month.
2. Bourbon Street - Holland Fair Corporation requested
additional time on its option for the space allocated to it.
This was refused. It has not been able to obtain financing
although its officers continue to express interest.
3. Jai Alai - The sponsor has requested a change in the
terma to permit him to pay only $20,000 ot the $70,000 down
on the signing of the lease and to pay the remainins
f501 000 within 60 days. We have advised the sponsor that we
are prepared to accept the change that the period
within which to pay the remaining '50,000 is shortened to
30 days.
Bon. Robert Moses
-2-
4. Bozo World - We have met with Mr. Larry Harmon, the
creator oP Bozo the Clown. He is interested in three or four
acres tor the construction of Bozo World. This can be put
either in Block 56 which had been set aside for the Jean
Buchet night club or in Block 57 in the area presently allo-
cated to Bourbon Street.
5. Chinese Junk - We have not heard further from Mr.
Ling who said that he would complete negotiations when he
returned. from Germany this sUDIIler. We have also been con-
sulted by General c. c. Kuo who is exploring the possibility
of building a Chinese restaurant on pilings in Meadow Lake
to resemble a floating restaurant. We cannot, of course,
have both Mr. Ling and General Kuo, and if their interest
continues, we shall have to choose between them.
6. Wax Museum - We have received and are reviewing the
comments of the attorney for the Wax Museum.
7. The Last Frontier - The Riss group has withdrawn
and the area has now been designated for parking.
8. Night Club - We have received confirmation that Mr.
Buchet is no longer interested.
9. Dance Hall, Tower, Pirates' Castle, Show Boat, Boats

In order to provide for control of interference .
caused by electric or electronic equipment, a proposed
change to Paragraph 9, Part 1 of the Fair Corporation's
Special Rules and Regulations is attached. This matter
bas been discussed with Legal Division, and it has been
agreed that it is necessary to amend the regulations in
order to establish this right.
WW/wh
Att.
Amendment of Paragraph 9, Part 1 of the Fair Corporation's Special
Rules and Regulations
9. Electrical Equipment and Electro Magnetic Interference
All electrical and electronic equipment must be installed and
operated by participant so as to insure that such equipment will not
cause any emission, radiation or induction which might possibly
endanger the functioning of any radio navigation or other safety
services or seriously degrade, obstruct or interrupt any radio-
communication service.
Participants must also insure that their equipment does not
interfere with the electrical and electronic acti \ll.ties and installations
of other participants in the Fair, provided that the activities and
installations of such other participants are of a type usually to be
found at large expositions similar to the New York World
1
s Fair.
By way of illustration, such activities and installations may include
radio, telephone, television (except antennas) and other electronic
equipment customarily used for display, equipment control, and
communications purposes. The Fair Corporation recognizes, however,
that participants may not be able to eliminate entirely interference
with scientific equipment of a delicate nature or other sensitive devices
such as television antennas.
To insure that participant complies with the provisions of
this paragraph 9, the Fair Corporation will require a certificate from
a professional engineer licensed in New York that any electrical and
electronic equipment to be installed by participant complies with the
applicable standards of the Federal Communications Commission and
the National Electric Manuiacturers Association.
In the event that a participant• s electrical and electronic
equipment causes any emission, radiation or induction as described
in the first paragraph above, or any interference as described in the
second paragraph above, the Fair Corporation shall require participant,
at his own expense, to discontinue use of such equipment and to take
whatever corrective action may be deemed necessary by the Fair
Corporation to eliminate such interference prior to participant
1
s using
such equipment again.

Attached for your approval are proposed changes in regulations
concerning:

These are necessary precautions which are not included in our
Building Code.
These provisions have been approved as to form by the Legal
Division.
WW/wr
Att.

The following shall be added as a new paragraph 25 of Part 1 of
the Fair CorPQration's Special Rules and Regu1ations
25. Precautions Against Freezing of Sprinkler Systems
Where participant does not heat his building above freezing between
November 1, 1964 and Aprill, 1965, and where the sprinkler systems of
such building are not being drained during that period, participants shall
protect such sprinkler systems from freezing. If participant uses a non-
freezing solution, participant must insuxe that such non-freezing solution
is in conformity with the Health Code and applicable regulations.
The followinq shall be added as a new paragraph 26 of Part 1 of
the Fair Corporation's Special Rules and Regu!ations.
26. Dry Pipe Valves for Sprinkler Systems, Deluge Systems, Flow
Alarm Devices
In connection with dry pipe valves for sprinkler systems, the
following shall be controlling with respect to deluge systems:
(a) The maximum nwnber of open head sprinklers controled
by any one deluge valve (Type B Dry Valve controlling open heads)
shall be as follows:
11/2 inch valve
2 inch valve
21/2 inch valve
3 inch valve
4 inch valve
6 inch valve
5 sprinlders
10 sprinklers
27 sprinlders
40 sprinklers
7 5 sprinklers
150 sprinklers
Where there are over 20 sprinklers or where required by the corporation,
the heat-responsive devices or systems shall be automatically supervised.
(b) The extra hazard schedule for the piping of deluge systems 1B
found in Article 15. 22 of the New York World's Fair 1964-1965 Building-
Code. Where necessary to provide uniform sprinkler discharge, the
pipe sizes shall be adjusted according to detailed friction loss calculations.
These calculations should show the relation between the water supply and
demand.
(c) In desiqning the piping system the water supply for deluqe systems
shall be based on not less than an average discharge of 15 gallons per
minute per sprinkler. Adjustment in pipe sizes to provide uniform sprinkler
discharg-e shall be based on a maximum variation of 15 per-cent from the
assumed average discharge per sprinkler. Where practical to obtain the
required degree of uniformity of discharge by sizing of piping this shall be
done rather than by using sprinklers having orifices smaller than 1/2 inch.
(d) Friction loss in steel pipe of deluge systems shall be calculated
using Hazen & Williams coefficient C equals 120 and obstruction losses
due to change of direction of water through fittings shall be figured on
terms of equivalent feet of pipe.
(e) Where change is made in pipe sizes this shall not be effected
by means of reducing flanges.
(f). Where Binch pipinq is employed to reduce friction losses in a
system operated by heat"responsive devices, a six-inch pre-action a
deluqe valve and six-inch qate valve between taper reducers may be
used.
(q). Dry pipe valves shall be equipped with an approved water flow
alarm device.

SUBJECT:
For aL-nost a year now the question has beer. discussed between t.1.e staff and
exhibitors as to the handling of curbs adjc:.cent to exhibitors' lots. We have now
reached the point where a decision must oe takeD.
Our basic plan has been to bol'clc:r all streets a:"ld walks with curbs 3
11
high
continuously bounding all e:r..t.J.bitors areas. This is desired by t.lle Park Deparb'nent
for the post-fair park and will facilit?..te cleanin,J by mechanical sweepers and
drainage at curb inlets. Our principal e:([libitor.3 .. iDcLeli:'.g Fcrd, Gas Inc., Bell
System and all oiliers who have been col1suhed, si.:::.·cnc.)ly favor no curbs at
entrances. Some of them would go fLlrther and cur·os entirely. The main
reason is a question of sarety. At the Seattle Fair, curbs proved so productive of
accidents a.."'ld clajms that most of them were filled wit!1 asphalt after a few weeks
experience. our conditions are different from those of Seattle, the·
exhibitors r.L3.ve considerable merit in their claims. This entire matter has been
discussed today at a conference with Sta Constable, Erwin Witt and representatives
of Martin Stone, Earle Andrews and Gil Clarke.
I: has been agreed, su'cject to yo<J..r approval, t'-1at we should allow curb
c·..:.ts ac1."oss t."'l.e entryways of exhibitors i)ut not throughout the fair. This
sl1ould be done, however, orJ.y subject to the exhibitor depositing v.ith the Fair
iunds to replace these curbs after the fair is over so that the
turned over to : .. e Park Department will be complete. Additional provision ... ·
:::-equire tte exhibitors to protect curb inlets for drainage purposes and to · r: y
solution is fully satisfactory and informal discussion of it wit1 leading .
indicates that tl1ey will not object to the cost of replacing the curbing
fair, wilich will not be a large item. Additional cleaning costs will be('entailed
but this will automatically fall on the exhibitor who will have to pay for the cleaning
out of his own entryway.
The exact working of the proposed change ir. l'G<JJlations I will clear with
John Thornton, provided you approve the abovwprir.ciple.
JJ.z____
Chief Enaineerf {I ---.:J

\VW/hc
The following shall be added as a new paragraph 24 of Part 1 of
the Fair Corporation's Special Rules and Regulations.
24. Curbs
All streets and walks throughout the Fair site will be generally
limited by three (3) inch high curbs, which curbs facilitate, among
other things, street cleaning and drainage at curb inlets. If a par-
ticipant wants a curb cut across the entryway to his Project, he shall
be required to include appropriate details as to the curb cuts desired
on the plans he submits to the Fair Corporation for approval. The
Fair Corporation will grant approval to a participant to eliminate curbs
across certain approved entryways upon the following conditions:
(a). Upon request of the Fair Corporation, at the time the Fair
Corporation approves participant's request to eliminate certain curbs,
participant shall pay to the Fair Corporation an amount estimated by
the Chief Engineer of the Fair Corporation as sufficient to replace such
curbs after the official close of the Fair.
(b). Participant shall be required to protect curb inlets for
purposes of drainage. In the event participant is permitted by the
Fair Corporation to move any cu-rb inlets, exhibitor shall move such
curb inlet at his own expense, and shall regrade the area to provide
for proper drainage. Such regrading shall be subject to the approval
of the Fair Corporation.
(c). In connection with the elimination of any of the Fair Corparation•s
curbs, as hereinabove provided, participants will be required to provide
their own curbs, starting from the termination of the Fair Corporation's
curbing, and extending at least to the required set back line.
The Fair Corporation would like to call participant's attention
to the fact that cleaning costs will be increased wherever curbs a:re
omitted, as mechanical sweeping and flushing of the streets will
necessarily result in debris being swept into the participant's entryway,
which debris must be removed at participant
1
s expense.

QONSTRUCTION- WORLD'S FAIR CONTRACTS AND DESIGN
The contractor for electric cable and substations, Eastern States Electrical,
is now finalizing details of activating the first two 5000 KV A transformers and
switchgear and maldng electric service available to General Motors and Ford for
construction purposes. Coordination with Consolidated Edison has been carried out
reqard1ng operational details. Telephone service from the new World's Fair network
is now being provided for a total of 25 contractors.
Work continues on the security building but has not been entirely satisfactory.
Especially careful supervision has been given, and steel columns improperly aligned
have been torn out. As a consequence, progress has been slow, but there is some
evidence that the contractor will now move more rapidly.
Contracts have been awarded for the construction of the five maintenance
buildings and for the press building (to be made prior to Executive Committee
meeting), as previously approved.
Design continues on the 1962 construction program. A number of major
items have been successfully completed and are approaching the contract stage, but
design bas not yet been completed on the permanent park pools. The lllth Street
bus terminal and the adjacent bus parking area are also slow and will have to be
expedited tf paving is to be accomplished before the onset of winter weather. Steps
to this end are being taken.
Elements of 1963 construction program are mostly assigned for design and
the design program will be prepared this month.
BXH!BlTORS DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
As a.n'ijcipated, exhibitors construction activity is rising rapidly. The
tremendous GM pavilion is furthest advanced with major excavations complete,
steel piling foundations well underway and a large field office. Gas Incorporated,
Ford, The Bell System, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, Travelers Insurance,
IBM and the State of New York are also actively engaged. The Port of New York
Authority started excavation for the helicopter landing stage and building last week.

There are less than 420 working days before Opening Day. Between
25 and 30 percent of this time comes in the winter months. Briefly,
there is just not quite enough time left to build the Fair without over-
time for exhibitors who delay starting beyond November.
Recommendations:

1. The Staff begin to worry.
2. The Industrial Section make personal contacts with
the Exhibitors to impress on them the actuality of
overtime costs.
3. The StatES' Section do the same and put pressure on
tor the appointment of architects so that plans will be
ready for contract when legislatures pass the appropriation
bills.
4. The International Section:
a. Pressure Consul Generals, Ambassadors, etc.

5. The Concessions Section request that its Exhibitors

sure the Exhibitors know their foundation problems.
These recommendations are based on contacts made with two of the
National Architects, four American Architects repres·enting foreign

and consultants, as well as top representatives of the following groups:
Exhibitors (signed and in negotiation)
