TWA Flight Center draws impressive crowd on OHNY Weekend
October 13, 2012
On Sunday October 7, over a thousand people passed through Eero Saarinen’s TWA Flight Center at Kennedy Airport, taking advantage of a rare opportunity to see the Modern landmark, which has been closed for over a decade. NY/Tri-State co-sponsored the six-hour event with the Open House New York organization and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey as part of the 10th annual Open House New York Weekend. Eleven of our dedicated volunteers served as docents, helping visitors understand the history of this iconic building and its recent restoration. This was also our chapter’s addition to nationwide DOCOMOMO US Tour Day.
Thanks to our great docents and to everyone who came!
