22 Photos of Summer in the '60s: the Beatles, World's Fair & More

New, 10 comments

The 1960s were a tumultuous and turbulent time, and New York City saw some of its most significant cultural events. The 1961 Yankees, often called the greatest baseball team in history, won the World Series, the Beatles played Shea Stadium, the World's Fair took over Flushing, and Pennsylvania Station was torn to the ground. Add in free-loving hippies, landing on the moon, and the growing opposition to the Vietnam War, and you have yourself one hell of a decade. And guess what? It just so happens that many of these memorable events happened in the summer, and we've collected 22 photos of summers in the '60s in New York City. Enjoy!
