16. TWA Flight Center
The TWA Flight Center (now TWA Hotel) serves as the airport where Midge must escort the magician Alfie onto a plane, as a favor to Susie. Midge arrives in a vintage yellow checker cab outside of the Eero Saarinen-designed terminal which dates to 1962. They wait for their gate number at the red-carpeted sunken lounge.
On the balcony of the TWA Flight Center, Midge runs into her parents, whose reservations to Florida were canceled. She also has a chance encounter with Lenny Bruce, who is on his way to Los Angeles, inside one of the terminal tunnels that connected the now-hotel to JetBlue’s terminal. The tunnels were also famously used in the film Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Check out our interview with the architect of the TWA Hotel here!
