Vintage Commercial Advertises the Benefits of Taking NYC Subway to the 1964-65 World's Fair

This vintage television commercial from the New York City Transit Authority (now the MTA) attempted to increase ridership by letting straphangers know they could get to the 1964-65 New York World's Fair by train, riding in style and ease out to Flushing Meadows–Corona Park for a mere fifteen cents.
