Nightly Viewers Share Their 1964 World’s Fair Photos and Memories

Brian Williams asked and you delivered. During Tuesday's night broadcast following a report on the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World's Fair, we asked viewers to share their own photos and memories of the historic event.

The fair was open for two six month sessions in 1964 and 1965 and more than 50 million Americans entered its Queens, New York gates, Nightly News viewers among them. We enjoyed looking at all your photos and reading your comments.

Here are some of the highlights:
