The move of Delta Airlines from the aging, near decrepit Terminals 2/3 into Terminal 4 at JFK Airport came with the addition of 9 new gates and some key new tenants, including Shake Shack. The new area was heralded by balloons today on opening day (attended by Mayor Bloomberg), but most interesting to note, in our opinion, was that the line for Shake Shack at 5:30pm was almost as long as the security line (unless you had TSA Pre-Check, in which there was no line for security). The architecture of the terminal mirrors the rest of the existing Terminal 4–generic but nice.

The new Sky Club, Delta’s largest to date, was open today as well, featuring a roof deck. Also in the new Terminal 4, the upscale, Uptown Brasserie:
