At one time, dinosaurs walked among the Hudson River. And that time was 1964, in order to celebrate the 1964 World's Fair - which took place at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. Sure the enjoyment of dinosaurs seems fun, but this was part of a promotion for an oil company exhibit.  The Sinclair Oil Corporation sponsored "Dinoland." The exhibit featured life-size replicas of nine dinosaurs. Sounds cute right? Well of the dinosaurs was a seventy foot long version of Sinclair Oil Corporation's signature Brontosaurus. Gotcha! The Sinclair Dinoland creatures took two years to create - and were manufactured at Jonas Studios in Hudson, New York.
