|WHEREAS: There has now been established within our boundaries, on a 205acre site in the Baychester section of the Bronx, the world's largest outdoor, family entertainment center - called Freedomland - whose purpose it is to restage 200 years of the American heritage, from pioneering days to the wonders of the space age.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Robert F. Wagner, Mayor of the City of New York, do herby proclaim Sunday, June 19, as
In New York City, and do highly commend the people whose worthy labors have been rewarded in the creation of this unique project, and I do further recommend Freedomland to our citizens and visitors and advise them to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in a living portrayal of all the beauty, art, culture, drama and heroism that added luster to the imperishable history of the United States of America.
-From the Official Proclamation,
Please note: I usually update the Memorabilia and Galleries when I come across something new or new info. I want to apologise to all. I've not really made any major updates to the gallery, or memorabilia in a long time. I have received new items and actually got a number of items on my wishlist. I will try to shoot them soon and send the newer pages up here. It seems the memorabilia pages are taking on a life all their own!! -rob
Once more..I wish to apologise for the delay in new info. The most recent change was changing the back server. Some of you might not know, but this site actually spans two servers. and the second one went down. I just changed from Digiweb to AngelCities. Let's see how that works out 9/16/2000 - rob (update 11/28/2010 I'm now completely on x10host.com . and after a year and a half my site is back up)
This is the original logo from 1960
This is the later logo from 1962
