TWA Terminal at JFK Airport

Standing outside of Terminal 5 at JFK three years ago, I thought the vacant TWA Terminal was an eyesore.  I was tempted to ask when George Jetson and his family moved out.

There’s more to it than that, though.  Click the link below to see text, photos and video which go way beyond the concrete impression I had.

In my defense, I saw the building from the outside after spending the night on a red eye from SFO.  The coffee they sold in Terminal 5 was not my brand (is that a delicate way of putting it, or what?), so I was determined to wait until I reached Manhattan — in the rain — before getting a cup of snob coffee in a Hell’s Kitchen deli.

I wasn’t at my best.

Be on the lookout for cars, clothing and other images you haven’t seen in years.  The video is a great nostalgia piece.
