ARTIFACT: 1939 Scarf

Artifact of the day is this rayon scarf, a souvenir of the 1939 New York World's Fair. Depicting a map of Manhattan, it includes many familiar points of interest (Times Square, Radio City, the Empire State Building) as well as some unfamiliar ones (Corlears Hook Park, the Seamen's Institute, the Sara Delano Roosevelt Playground). 

And, of course, Tudor City.
