I felt like stepping into a time capsule of aviation history at the TWA Hotel, nestled within the iconic TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport. As someone who recently explored this transformed masterpiece, I couldn’t help but be captivated by the seamless blend of mid-century modern glamour and contemporary luxury.
The architect responsible for this masterpiece is Eero Saarinen. Fantastic work! He also designed other architectural masterpieces around the world.
After a NYC Subway ride – The best metropolitan train system in the world – I decided to visit the TWA hotel at JFK here in NYC. I have seen it so many times on my way to my adventures in Latin America. It was cloudy, but I did the best I could taking these memorial architecture photos. Scroll down and let me know what you think.
For photography enthusiasts, every corner is a visual delight. The iconic TWA emblem, the pristine red carpet, and the vintage air travel artifacts provide an endless array of photo opportunities that tell the story of an era where air travel was synonymous with sophistication.
The TWA Hotel is more than just a stay; it’s a journey through time, a celebration of design, and a testament to the visionary spirit of aviation. Whether you’re an aviation enthusiast, a history buff, or someone seeking a unique escape, this transformed terminal-hotel is a captivating destination that invites you to indulge in the glamour of the past while enjoying the comforts of the present.
