In a few days, Open House New York will celebrate the city’s architecture by letting New Yorkers go behind the scenes, but there’s one place of mystery and intrigue you can cross off your itinerary: "Terminal 6 at Kennedy International Airport—a crisp island of aesthetic tranquility by the master architect I.

The main pavilion, whose white steel roof seems to float ethereally over cascades of diaphanous green glass, is expected to come down by the end of October.” Over at the iconic terminal, it’s more like prepare for boarding up instead of boarding.

National Airlines, which opened Terminal 6 in 1969 as the ‘Sundrome’ was a high-profile player on that globetrotting stage, most notoriously for christening its jetliners with women’s names and inviting the public to ‘fly me.’”
