    TWA Flight Center @ OHNY Weekend - October 6 and 7, 2012

    Hi all,

    Maybe it's premature to assume, but the front cover of the new Open House New York Weekend 2012 has a small 8-bit-like graphic of the TWA Flight Center on it.

    http://ohny.org/weekend/event-guide

    Is it safe to assume it will be open again for this year's weekend?

    Can anyone confirm for sure and if so, which day?

    -B
    Believe It!

    Thanks for the advice. I will mark it on my calendar. Hope photography is allowed. I visited many times. It is a magnificent structure. It was even duplicated in part for the Tom Hanks film, "The Terminal". It had great views of Runways 22L/R as well but these might be gone due to construction next door of the Jet Blue Complex. It will bring back great memories of the days when JFK had the 3 chapels and lit fountains where the parking lot now stands. Oct. 7 is the date. No reservations I hope and we don't have to worry about the weather.

    The event was very much open to photography and I think just about everyone there had cameras or camcorders. PANYNJ police and security personnel had no issue with photography as long as it was in, and directly around, the Saarinien building.

    The only incident last year if I recall, some people were scolded for jumping the perimeter fence that surrounds the gravel "no-man's-land" area where the tubes are located in order to get better shots. Rule of thumb is just please be courteous and respectful of the building and property. Until the building is once again open to the public, we don't want to lose these kinds of opportunities. They are rare as it is.

    So who will be there tomorrow that wants it known here? I plan on going, but not sure what time ill go as there are some other OHNY sites I'd like to see. last year I spent so much time there that my parking fee was near $30 in T5 lot. Does anyone have any info about parking at Bldng 14, walking to the Federal Cir. Air Train and then take that to T5? common sense says don't risk a tow, but I remember during the JFK Runway run a few years ago, parking was plentiful there on a Sunday.

    Thanks
    David

    Nice, Eric! Was the Duty Free area actually part of the tour this year, or did you just wander through an open door like we did last time?

    It was visible this year, but you couldn't walk all the way in.
