1964 World's Fair Bench, also known as the Flushing Meadows Corona Park bench. This bench is based on the original design of the 1964 World's Fair bench which was held in Queens, NY. The original benches for the fair were made of cast aluminum, our model is made of virtually unbreakable ductile iron. This bench model was reintroduced to the parks department in 1995. It has become very popular over the past years and is used in various parks throughout all 5 boroughs and various suburban towns. The use of recycled plastic lumber has increased greatly in the search for sustainable materials. The plastic lumber does not have the same strength properties as traditional lumber, we therefore have devised a steel support system to provide additional strength while still maintaining the overall bench design.
