Hotel at iconic TWA terminal will evoke glamour of jet age

A hotel under construction at the long-closed TWA Flight Center at New York’s Kennedy Airport will conjure the glamour of air travel in 1962, when architect Eero Saarinen’s jet-age landmark first opened. The $265 million hotel will have a rooftop pool and a museum stocked with artifacts, including uniforms lent by former TWA flight attendants. The TWA terminal closed in 2001, when TWA was acquired by American Airlines. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)
