Every Year, Open House New York (OHNY) gives back to New Yorkers by granting them access to locations many hardly ever see. On October 15th and 16th, New Yorkers will have access to the TWA Terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport which has been closed since 2001.
According to Jane Levere, this years OHNY is a celebration of architecture and design throughout the five boroughs and is expected to draw a record 200,000 participants. All of the weekend's more than 300 activities are meant to unlock New York and provide rare access to sites, tours, talks and special performances that exemplify the city's diverse and culturally rich, man-made environment.
"When completed, the TWA Terminal was an icon of modern design and the golden age of jet travel. But the terminal was considered obsolete with the advent of jumbo jet aircraft, and later decommissioned and closed to the public," says Levere.
