Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal

Thanks to Open House New York, the old TWA terminal at JFK Airport, designed by Eero Saarinen, was open to the public for just three hours last Sunday.  The terminal has been sitting empty for quite a while, and I was thrilled to have the chance to finally walk through the long tunnels from the Jet Blue terminal into this futuristic concrete creation.  Eventually the building might be converted into a boutique hotel, so this may have been the last chance for the public to get a glimpse of what it looked like when it was a functioning airport terminal.  However, according to this article on NewYorkology, there has also been talk of creating regular visiting hours on certain days of the week, so perhaps it won't be long until we can visit again.


  1. i love sophisticated...

  2. Hopefully they're going to open it to the public again. I'll keep you guys updated if they do!
