IMG_3562The TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport announced the opening of an outdoor ice skating rink.

The rink is located next to the hotel’s 1958 Lockheed Constellation, known as the “Connie,” which is used as a cocktail lounge.  The hotel itself is centered around the TWA Flight Center, designed by Eero Saarinen.

Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children under 12.

Saarinen’s gull-winged terminal opened its doors to passengers in 1962. The terminal closed in 2001 after TWA’s assets were acquired by American Airlines in bankruptcy. TWA commissioned the Lockheed Constellation in 1939 and a Constellation broke the speed record for a transcontinental flight in 1946.
