Captures

Saarinen's intent to show the terminal as the cathedral of flight. It looks like a huge bird just lifting from the ground.

Familiar old friend

The white car on the far left is a 1962 Ford Galaxie..my first car. The thing was built like a tank. The dashboard and glovebox were all metal. You opened the hood and everything was easy to find. I even did my own tune-ups, oil changes and changed out the starter motor. Today, I wouldn't know where to begin.

One word ...

Beautiful!

Jet Blue

It is a shame how Jet Blue has obstructed the original view and remodeled the interior of this iconic building. Probably one of the very few left at JFK that had any Architectural significance.
