To the Airport Of Yesteryear

Today’s an airport hotel, a retro effort that my good friend August Horvath brought to my attention on Instagram here.

His comment: “I don’t know if the crazy @twahotel venture at @jfkairport will succeed, but it sure is done in style. From the elevator that pretends to be a time machine, to the access tube, terminal, vintage luggage and even the coasters, the theme is retro and whimsical, with some important landmark preservation mixed in.”

Let’s hope it succeeds, and as we saw with LA’s ‘Theme Building’ here, old airport heritage can sometimes survive…
