3. There’s An Abandoned Hotel at JFK Airport

Abandoned Ramada Hotel at JFK Airport

The only hotel, a Ramada Plaza, on the property of JFK Airport itself was nicknamed the Heartbreak Hotel, but not because of its current abandoned state. It gets its nickname because it housed so many relatives of victims of plane crashes in the 1990s and 2000s.

Citing a need for cost savings and renovation at the site, the Port Authority closed the Ramada in 2009, with plans to open a new hotel elsewhere at the airport. In 2014, it was reported that labor issues had stalled plans to redevelop the hotel. For now, you can see this abandoned hotel when you ride the AirTrain.
