A young couple observes the ease and convenience of getting to the World's Fair on the Pennsylvania Railroad; the red trains shoot through the nighttime cityscape to the bright World's Fair station. Visible among New York's newly completed architectural details are the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, Rockefeller Center, a larger-than-life Pennsylvania Station and the Fair's Trylon and Perisphere. One of two posters the artist designed for the Pennsylvania Railroad promoting travel to the Fair.
