The JFK TWA Terminal

The TWA Flight Center by Eero Saarinen

Curbed New York has a great photo essay up this morning on Eero Saarinen’s jet-age flight center at JFK Airport. It’s been closed for years but has remained perfectly preserved for most of that time, reflecting a golden age of flight where the passengers where what was important and the service took a back seat.



Sadly, the space is being reprogrammed as a boutique hotel, but thanks to it’s hard won status as a designated landmark, a good amount of the interior and exterior should remain well preserved. In an age where little stands still, that counts as a victory.
