There was the TWA terminal .. the shack that National/TransCaribbean/TransCanada (and someone else) were in .. the American terminal .. the United terminal .. the Eastern/Mohawk terminal .. the Northwest/Northeast/Braniff building .. the Pan Am building .. and the IAB .. and they were NOT connected. I walked around from building to building (they were not connected) .. took great shots of the ramp from the road .. picked up lots of timetables and brochures .. had cheesecake for lunch at the Eastern terminal .. was a great time. Shows you how things have changed 'cuz now - you would not let a 12yo spend the day at JFK alone. Thanks mom & dad!
Did you visit New York City as well.
no - the trip was all about spending the day at JFK to see the airliners!
