    TWA Terminal at JFK Reimagined: Special Behind the Scenes Tour

    Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal at JFK Airport closed to the public in 2000 and has been unused ever since. Through a long bumpy flight, the iconic landmark has risen again to touch down as a repurposed hospitality center for a new hotel and conference center. Scheduled to open May of 2019, participants now have the opportunity for a pre-opening TWA Hotel tour lead by two architects who have worked long on the project; Charlie Kramer, A.I.A, LEED AP, and Joe Gall A.I.A, LEED AP. The 90-minute tour will include both the historic TWA Terminal, as well as the new conference center and new hotel wings. 

    Joe Gall is a Senior Associate at Beyer Blinder Belle and Charlie Kramer is a Director of Historic Preservation at CANY, and an APTNE Board Member.

    - Please note that APTNE cannot be held liable, and assumes no responsibility for any injury or loss incurred by participants in this program.

    - Transportation & Parking Take the JFK Airtrain to Terminal 5 (Jet Blue). On the Terminal 5 Airtrain platform, take the escalator up to the next level. Make a left and walk across the bridge (toward Jet Blue). At the end of the bridge, take an elevator (on the left) down to the ground (above elevators are green illuminated bus signs). Do not make the slight right and walk into the part of the bridge to Jet Blue, you will have gone past the elevators. Upon leaving the elevator at the sidewalk, make a righthand turn and walk to the roadway (but do not cross). Make a left and walk along the sidewalk next to the Jersey barrier to TWA. Enter the construction gate and walk to the center of TWA and enter the lobby where we will meet at 3:20 p.m. to sign waivers; tour starts at 3:30 p.m. SHARP.

    Allow minimum 90 minutes if traveling by subway from mid-town via the Airtrain. If taking the LIRR to the Jamaica Airtrain station, a little less time is needed. There is no parking at the TWA construction site, but JFK has a number of nearby parking (paid) garages.

    Thank you to our sponsors CANY and Silman!
