TWA Center at JFK Open to Public This Weekend

I’m a complete nerd for all things aviation, which makes this bit of news particularly exciting for me.

As part of openhousenewyork, the defunct TWA Flight Center at JFK has been spit-polished and will be open to the public this Sunday, Oct. 16 from 1-4 p.m. It’s a unique piece of New York architecture and history, and I’d love to go check this out.

Originally opened in 1962, it served as the original terminal for Trans-World Airlines (TWA).
