The Marine Air Terminal at LaGuardia Airport

With Bob Singleton

[Virtual tour] The Marine Air Terminal (also known as Terminal A) is an airport terminal located at LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York City. Its Main Building (designed in the Art Deco style by William Delano of the firm Delano & Aldrich) opened in 1940. The terminal was built to handle Pan Am’s fleet of flying boats, the Boeing 314 Clippers, and both the interior and the exterior were declared New York City Landmarks in 1980. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

Using the historic Marine Air Terminal and LaGuardia Airport as a starting point, Greater Astoria Historical Society’s Bob Singleton takes you on a flight of postcard images from the early years of aviation during the 1930s, then travels back in time to fly over the airport’s early years and finish in a whirlwind of past aviators, airplanes, and airports which left their mark in the Borough of Queens.

Buckle your seatbelts as we journey through the borough’s aviation history. See the airports of the future today. Walk through the proposed ‘Museum of Aviation at the Marine Air Terminal’ where we see how Queens grew wings … and never returned to earth.

For all tours, there are no refunds, cancellations, or exchanges unless we cancel a tour. Online registration closes one hour prior to the tour start time.
