The John F. Kennedy is in many cases a standard busy international airport with multiple terminals. Despite the largeness of the airport, the sight of Terminal 5, or what is known as the TWA Terminal, is a sight to behold. With its swooping lines and curves and huge glass parabolic windows, the look of the TWA Terminal jets people back to the mid-century when commercial air travel was still relatively new and fascinating. See this mid-century delight and more from the east at Roadside Peek's Mid-Century Modern Architecture East.
