JFK AirTrain Views

Sun Dec 21, 2003 2:22 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew how good the views were from either any of the platforms which seem to be very high off the ground or from the train itself for landing and departing traffic.

Never been in one of the stations yet, but when i visited a month ago it seemed like the view from the stations would be blocked by the terminal right in front of it(namely terminal 1, 4). However it looked like you could get great views while the train is in motion between terminals.

Just happened to ride the train a few hours ago, during a layover. I can tell you that the views from the trains themselves are quite good. I imagine that several of the above-ground stations are the same. However, I'm not sure there is anyplace in the stations where you would have a completely unobstructed view of the terminals. There is often a wall-to-wall glass/door partition between the waiting area and the track.
