Puck magazine looking for the 1883 Exposition/World's fair that was never held full color page 12-1-1880--The Exposition drew initial approval until those politicians behind the movement relealized it would not fit in Central Park. In 1883 Inwood was to play host to the World’s Fair, a dream that never materialized due to haphazard planning, dissension and general lack of support.As early as December 10, 1880 a New York Times headline screamed, “Inwood as the Fair Site.” The article cited “communication” and “the character of the place” as key reasons for Inwood’s selection. Initially, the Exposition’s exploratory committee met their selection with “unbridled satisfaction“. According to the Times article, “this feeling sprang, not simply from the fact that the assault upon Central Park had been successfully repelled, but also from a conviction that Inwood is, in all respects, the most feasible site yet proposed."
