DOCOMOMO NY/TRIOpen House & Tour

NY/Tri-State Lands at TWA for OHNY Weekend 2012

October 7, 2012

We are thrilled to announce that DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State will be co-sponsoring an open house at Eero Saarinen’s seminal TWA Flight Center at Kennedy Airport as part of Open House New York (OHNY) Weekend. The terminal, which was closed in 2001, will be open to the public on Sunday October 7 from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. Over a number of years, DOCOMOMO has worked closely with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and other preservation advocates to assure the terminal's future. We are grateful to the Port Authority and to OHNY for including us in this event.

When the site was open during last year’s OHNY Weekend it attracted over 1,000 visitors during a single afternoon. The open house is free and no reservations are required. This program will also be NY/Tri-State chapter’s addition to DOCOMOMO US Tour Day 2012, which will take place across the country the same weekend. 

Take the AirTrain to Terminal 5 or if you’re driving, park in the Yellow Parking Garage and walk across the street.

Visit the OHNY website closer to event date for more details and listings of other sites participating in OHNY.
