Absolutely BEYOND FABULOUS...!!!!!!!!!!!Here is something that I think you will LOVE. It's a walk back to 1962 . . .
A few days ago, I was blown away by how the old TWA terminal at JFK was converted into a hotel -- all retro with TWA accents, and some legit original features like the authentically restored TWA flight board in the "sunken" lounge. Wait until you see some of the amazing (preserved) features that the owner/designers highlighted in this masterpiece. By the way, many people were looking forward to staying here -- it was sold out on Day One!!
Time magazine put a (3 minute) awesome video together here (after the obligatory 1-minute commercial by another airline -- LOL ... talk about product placement? ) I clicked on it full screen and it was amazing--everything from the history to the recreation.
I had read about this a little while back, but, this is the first I’ve seen of the finished product...thank you so very much for posting this, Minnie...!!!!!
One of the coolest aspects, to me anyway, sounds like the bar setup in the old Lockheed “Connie”...I’m definitely up for that, as I flew in one when I was a little kiddo, and thought it was the coolest plane ever, at the time...fuselage that kinda’ resembled a dolphin shape, and other coolness...!!!!!
When they turned our old Bergstrom Air Force base into our new airport, the old round command building was converted into a Hilton hotel. Very beautiful, but I would have preferred they went retro, as well...
Hilton Austin Airport is the closest hotel to Circuit of the Americas, home of Formula One racing. Enjoy free 24-hour airport shuttle.
And, 1962 is one of my favorite years, as I was born on 10/20/62, albeit right smack in the middle of the Cuban Missle Crisis... but, we all know how that, fortunately, turned out...!!!!!
Thanks again, Minnie, for your post...!!!!!
Here’s a fairly recent video of a “Connie”, that I thought you might appreciate. It’s a bit drawn out, but, I enjoyed it, and I hope you do too...!!!!!
