Recently, Untapped Cities - New York got to go on a private tour of Saarinen’s TWA terminal at JFK, where most of the airport scenes from Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can were shot.  The terminal was designed and built by Eero Saarinen and was used from 1962 - 2001.  Due to its incredibly well-preserved 60s-mod interior it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.  The space is an excellent example of Saarinen’s fabulous midcentury style and highlights his history working with Florence Knoll designing furniture and interiors.
