INDUSTRIAL SECTION
PROGRESS REPORT
(as of September 5, 1962)
1. Since our last r e p o r t ~ the following space has been added:
(a) THE S, C. JOHNSON COMPANY which held a lease
on 17,304 sq. ft. in Block 7 - Lot 1, has increased
its exhibit space by moving to Block 18 - Lot 3
covering 33, 206 sq. ft.
2. Favorable progress can be reported in the following situations:

to the point of approving the lease terms. We are
awaiting a formal signing. The site involved is Block 9 -
Lot 7, covering 20, 000 sq. ft.
(b) SCOTT PAPER COMPANY: Participation is predicated
on the successful completion of contracts with Brass
Rail and Allied Maintenance, and negotiations are
proceeding with all likelihood that Scott will take a
25, 000 sq. ft. area in Block 11 - Lot 2.
(c) SEVEN-UP: A definite decision to participate in the
Fair, prior to the last Executive Committee Meeting,
was cancelled and has now been restored. Lease

3. We continue to receive encouraging reports from the following
companies:

although Heinz continues to remain uncommitted.

on its own exhibit conception and has requested a site of

are currently undertaJ.rJ.ng a cost and feasibility study.
(b) LIGGETT & MYERS TOBACCO CO, A series of meetings
have been. held with this company and their advertising

Lot 5 for a model toy factory. They are currently worldng
on costs and an answer should be forthcoming by the middle

Winston-Salem.
5. We have made litHe progress toward definite participation in the
following situations:

sub-lease of the Amphitheatre. Until they have reached a
conclusion on this matter we have reserved approaching

(c) HALLMARK CARDS, rnc. :.Mr. J. C. Hall has been in
Europe and will not return l.Ultillater in September. No
decision can be made in his absence.
{d) PHILIP MORRIS, INC. Negotiations remain in the preliminary
stages.
{e) PIEL BROS. No answer can be expected until October, althou.qh
interest in the Fair remains.
{f) PITTSBURGH PLATE GLASS CO. Hope, although faint, remains
but we have been unable to devise a means of making exhibit
participation economically attractive.
{g) RADIO CORPORATION OF AMERICA This company is still
working on their own to arrive at an exhibit idea attractive to
all its divisions. They are talking in terms of a $6, 000, 000
budget. The situation remains hopeful and a prime lot is being
held for them.
{h) REVLON, INC. No further action can be expected until
Mr. Charles Revson, President, returns from Europe shorUy.
{i) SPERRY -RAND (Univac Division) They continue to explore a
joint exhibit potential, pleading limited budget.
{j) WORLD OF TOYS Lease negotiations continue.
6. We have had discouraging news from the following:

(b) C. F. CHILDS & co .. INC. It appears doubtful that original
plans to exhibit can be accomplished.

INDUSTRlAL SECTION
PROGRESS REPORT
(as of September 5, 1962)
(c) GENERAL :MILlS This company has been qnder pressure
to make a major contribution towards the proposed
Minnesota exhibit. Without their participation a state
pavilion may not be possible. If :funds are advanced for
this purpose there will not be an adequate budget for their
own building and exhibit. We have not abandoned hope,
but prospects are limited.
(d) THE GREAT ATLANTIC & PACIFIC TEA CO, Recent interest
on the part of Mr. Gilb, President of the Bakery Division,
resulted in referral to their Board of Directors who refused
participation.
7. HALL OF PRESIDENTS
We met with Roy Disney, Jack Sayers and Dick Irvine of the Disney
organization in Burbank. Studies axe under way for a revised
budget, and consideration is being given to possible financing by
Disney himself so that the project will be committed. Industrial
participation, even on a multiple exhibit basis if necessary, will
thereafter be solicited tmtil the Fair's opening to relieve the
Disney commitment. We are seeking, however, a resolution by
Disney to proceed tmconditionally. An admission charge is a
definite in this study.

MEMORANDUM TO ARTHUR. S. HODGKISS
FROM JOHN T. O'NEILL
SUBJECT: Progress Report on Arterial Highway Construction
in Vicinity of World's Fair
There has been no significant improvement in progress since
the last report. However, the State has taken the following actions to
improve progress:
The Superintendent of Public Works met with
the principals of Contract No. 6, De Lillo Contracting
Co., in Albany on August 20, 1962 and directed the
contractor to prepare a new construction schedule for
completing the work on time which will be used by the
State on a month-to-month basis to determine if the
contractor will be permitted to continue operations.
Since the meeting- the contractor has shown a more
cooperative attitude, however it is too early to note
actual improvement in progress.
The Superintendent of Public INorks also con-
ducted a similar ineeting with the principals of
Contract No. 2, Merritt-Chapman & Scott, Inc. -
Mount Vernon Contracting Co. (Joint Venture), in
Albany on August 31, iJ62. This contract continues
to backslide and is overdue for a major reorganiza-
tion. The August payment estimate is below the July
estimate.
Contract No. ll, Johnson, Drake & Piper, Inc. has had a
relapse. During July this contract indicated a potential for improve-
ment in progress. However, within the past month serious deteriora-
tion has developed. The Raymond Pile Co. has removed a pile rig
and has served notice on the contractor that the remaining rigs will be

and has served notice on the contractor that the remaining rigs will be
-2-
removed unless the contractor expedites the preparation of sites for
pile driving. Faulty cofferdams are holding up the work. There is
also alleged internal friction and several key men have left the job.
The State's field supervisor has scheduled a meeting with the con-
tractor on September 4, 1962 to discuss progress.
Since this contract has been previously reported as unsat-
isfactory, it is believed that a top level meeting between the State
and contractor should be held as soon as possible.

Executive Committee.
CONSTRUCTION- WORLD'S FAIR CONTRACTS AND DESIGN
The first 5000 Jn/A transformer at Substation #1, located in the Transportation
Area, bas been enerfjized and on September 4th Mr. Moses formally initiated the
electric service. General Motors and theN. Y. Port Authority received the first
electric power throuqh the 4160 volt distribution system. The second 5000 KVA
transformer, in Substation #2 - serving the remaining area during construction -
will be energized shortly. Electric power for construction purposes is expected
to be ava.Uable to all of the active exhibitors in September.
The insta.ll.atlon of uWity connections at the Fair site, including electric
crossovers for supplementary electric service and tel.ephone conduit into exhibitors'
properties, has shown improved progress this month.
The Fair Corporation Security Building is 4016 complete. After a poor start,
this contract under Electronic and Missile Facilities Corporation now appears to be
progressinq satisfactorily. Ground has been broken for three Maintenance Buildings
and the Press Building.
Design is well advanced and in some cases already completed on the
rernaininq items in our construction budget, including those for construction under
Park Department contracts. Design assignments have been made and design
1rlit.1ated on all new construction items. A design and contract schedule for the
b ~ e of the work will be finalized this month.
EXHIBITORS DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
Pile work has been completed at General Motors, Ford, Gas Inc. , and
New York State Exhibit and is nearing completion on several other sites. In addition
General Motors has completed pile caps and placed approximately 2CY;{, of the foundation
concrete.

Sg. Ft. Status
Chrysler Corporation 124,034
Over a year ago, Chrysler signed a lease for
129,987 sq.ft. Although Chrysler is already
the third largest corporate exhibitor in the
Fair, we began sometime ago to an effort
to convince them to enlarge their area.
(Additional space includ-
ing landscaped area)
OreyQound
Our efforts have finally met with success.
On my last trip to Detroit, • officials
assured me that they would move their exhibit
and take on an additional 52
1
513 sq.ft. Tbie
brings their total area to 182
1
500 and increase•
their rental payment to the Fair by over
$420.000.
They have also agreed to assume the complete
obligation of landscaping and maintaining an
additional 71,521 sq.ft. which adjoina their
new location. This will cost Chrysler, and
save the Fair, a minimum of $250,000.
Another advantage of this change is that
Chrysler has given up its choice location on
Grand Central Parkway, leaving us with a
parcel that is more easily rentable than the
new site that they will take.
The Chairman of the Board and the President
will make the final decision on September 7th.
85,000 Stuart Constable, Erwin Witt and I met with
(Exhibit area included Messrs. Maino and Brion of Greyhound and
within operating and reached a tentative agreement on the rental
maintenance area) payment for an exhibit within Greyhound's
operating and maintenance area. this agree-
ment is now being incorporated into an
appropriate document by the World's Fair
legal staff.

Intercontinental Cuisine, Inc.
15,052
Messrs. Gottlieb and Lippert, the developer•
of Autorama, are finalizing their plana and
report that everything is going smoothly on
this project.
As previously reported, they have agreed to
pay the Fair ten per cent of their gross
revenues with a mintmum guarantee of
$750,000. Of this amount, $175,000 would be
paid upon signing of the leaae.
In conjunction with Mr. Constable, we have
negotiated a leaae with Mr. Joseph Holden for
a unique type of restaurant. Mr. Holden, who
operated the very successful Aviation Grill
in the 1939-40 Fair, will pay the Fair $8.00
per square foot plus 4 per cent of his gross
revenue.
This venture will be backed, in part, by the
Schlitz Brewing Company and will serve Schlita
beer exclusively. This is the same arranse-
ment that prevailed in the earlier Fair.
In order not to interfere with the Industrial
Section's efforts to obtain an exhibit from
Schlitz, we are including a provision that
the structure will not be identified externally
as a Schlitz building.
We anticipate a lease signing in mid-September.
The corporate lessee will be Century Grill
International, Inc., which also will probably
be the ultimate name of the restaurant.
This organization desires to locate a luxury
restaurant in the Transportation Section, in
addition to a completely separate project in
the Industrial Area. Here again, we are work-
ing with Mr. Constable to see whether this
venture should be recommended for acceptance.
We are exercising care to be sure that this
lease will have no adverse effect on certain
other projects in the Industrial Area.

Aerospace
Goodyear
Eastern Air Lines
We have examined- and are much impressed with
Dr. Scher
1
s outstanding private collection
of prize-winning autos which have not pre-
viously been offered for general public dis-
play.
We expect a final decision by the end of
September.
Mr. Moses has written to Secretary of Commerce
Hodges recommending that the Federal Government
supply the leadership needed on this project.
We will continue to try to get together with
Assistant Secretary Herbert Klotz, with the
ultUn8te goal of arranging a conference with
Mr. Webb, Administrator of NASA.
Parallel to this tactic, we will press the
Martin Company to team with United Aircraft
for a combination exhibit employing smaller
apace (in the neighborhood of 20,000 square
feet). We anticipate a meeting on this phase
before the end of September.
w ~ will be in touch with Goodyear in the
next two weeks to discuss their usc of the
site that will be vacated by Chrysler.
Due to their long and very costly flight
engineers strike, we have been unable to get
a decision from Eastern on the detailed proposal
we worked up for them. If Eastern does not make
up its mind very shortly, we will take the
project to American Airlines.

Status
An exhibit devoted to pramoting safe driving
is being developed in collaboration with
Mr. O'Connor, District Attorney of Queens
County. We have met a number of times in
the past weeks with Mr. O'Connor and member•
of his staff to work out plans for its
sponsorship. At present we have a nUmber
of firms interested in participating in this
exhibit. We expect to line up additional
sponsors who are interested in motoring safety.
This company is still very interested in the
Fair. However, they have reached no decision
on the matter. One possibility is a partial
sponsorship of the Motoring Safety Center.
We are very confident that Socony will exhibit
in the Fair. Their present plans are centered
on the reuse of the Economy Run audience par•
ticipation exhibit which is so successful at
Seattle.
Although we are continuing our efforts on this
organization, we regard Atlantic as a doubtful
starter.
We have been working through Mr. Stan Hope,
former Chairman of Humble, in an attempt to
have Humble rescind its negative decision.
So far, the results have not been encouraging.
However, we are now working up a new proposal
which ties in more closely with their marketing
aims.
After a n\Dllber of negative decisions, Goodrich
is now considering sponsorship of the Special
Events Stadium, We should have a decision
from them by the end of September,

There are a number of firms considering the
sponsorship of this project. Goodrich is
probably the strongest possibility.
Messrs. Briggs and Crane are continuing
their canvass of the industry and are very
optimistic, The final picture should come
out of the Chicago Boat Show this month.
I am relatively certain that Outboard Marine
will be the main exhibitor in this show.

You will recall that the Chrysler Corporation presently has under lease an area
..e· 129,987 square feet in lot 47 • block 1. Their total rental for this area is
$1,039,896, I have for sometime been negotiating with the Chrysler Corporation
for an increase in area and a relocation of their exhibit.
Yeaterday I met in Detroit with Mr. Forbes, Vice President in Charae of tbe
World'• rair project and Mt. Ducody, the Project Manager. Subject to your appro•
val, 1 neaotiated with Chrysler a relocation to lot 48. (Aerospace Island) on the
follovina baah:
1. Chrysler Corporation would lease from the Fair an area of
182,500 square feet at our normal rate of $8.00 per square
foot, making their total rental $1,460.000, an increase of

2. This area would be located in the center of Aerospace leland.
Tbe two ends of the Island (approximately 35,000 square feet
at each end) would be landscaped with pools and shrubbery by
the Chryaler Corporation at their expense. They would also
maintain these areas during the two years of the Pair and
would have the normal obligation of restoratiOn.
3. The Chrysler Corporation would have no right to exhibit on
these areas but they would have the right to install walk-
ways, subject to our approval, leading to their exhibit
site.
4. The Pair Corporation would agree not to lease theae areas
to any other exhibitor.
Caaialf.oaer Robert Moses
August 31. 1962
I rec01mend that this proposal be accepted for the following reasons:
1. It will increase our inccae from the Chrysler. Corporation
by $420,104.
2. It makea available to us for rental the present Chrysler
site which is located on Grand Central Parkway and which
I believe to be a more desirable piece of property,
3. The Chrysler .Corporation will spend a minimum of $250,000
to laodacape the two ends of the Island and the Pair will
be relieved both of this expense and the cost of maintain:l.na
these areas in the event that we were unable to rent tbia
apace.

If thf.t proposal ia acceptable to you, a presentation will be made to the Cbairliwn

Mr. Holden successfully operated a restaurant (The Aviation Grill) in the
Aviation Building in the 1939·40 World's Fair. He was backed in part by
the Schlitz Brewing Company and sold Schlitz beer exclusively. The same
arrangement will hold true for the proposed restaurant.
•v
I'ILII
In order not to interfere with Martin Stone's negotiations with the Schlitz
Brewing Company, the lease with Holden will include a provision that his
restaurant cannot be externally signed so as to infer that it is a Schlitz
exhibit. They will be given permission to display the Schlitz sign inside
the restaurant. Mr. Goit of Mr. Stone's group is handling the Schlitz
account. He has contacted Schlitz in Milwaukee and was advised that Schlitz
wishes to go through with this particular restaurant and that this would have
no affect on anything else they might do in the Industrial Area.
Both Mr. Constable and Mr. Witt concur in this recoumendation.
