Yankee Doodle Palace: The first American World’s Fair, New York, 1853

Episode 2 in WORLDS FAIRS EXPOSEed, (a DocuCommentary video series I create and narrate which focuses primarily on the World’s Fairs held in the United States since 1853) is now available on my Meet MythAmerica Youtube channel. You can watch it on this page in a small version, or, once you press the play button here,  click on the word Youtube at the bottom right of the video screen, which will take you to the large version, or the full screen version, on Youtube.

This Episode explores the background, implementation, and aftermath of the fair held at the American Crystal Palace in New York City in 1853/1854.


Some of the material in the video makes reference to contents of the first, introductory episode in the series. If you have not yet seen Episode 1, “Fair Enough: The Great Exhibition, London, 1851” you can watch it on Youtube at the following address:
