Resolution Reached for Landmark TWA Terminal at JFK; Preservation, Public Policy, Practicality Are Big Winners

twa saarinenThe Municipal Art Society (MAS), the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and JetBlue Airlines have reached a tentative agreement on a plan for Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal at JFK Airport that will largely save the internationally acclaimed landmark while allowing it to be adapted to the needs of a 21st century airport. As part of a Federally mandated public review process for the redevelopment of the building, MAS, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, and JetBlue Airlines held a series of meetings during which they worked out a terminal expansion plan that preserves many of its original features and keeps the building in airline use.
