Tony Campbell posted a summary on his Map History site of the current state of the giant terrazzo map of New York State from the 1964 World's Fair. It's a reproduction of a Texaco (Rand McNally) road map, and was a favorite attraction at the fair. See a news story from the (Newark) Times-Ledger on the current state of the map, and especially see pictures of the map then and now here. The pictures at the bottom I find especially creepy.

Amazing to see how decay can occur in 40 years! Drove by this the other day and the entire structure surrounding the map has clearly seen better days, looks like it may go at any moment!
