Last week I had the opportunity to visit the TWA lounge located downtown in One World Trade Center. If you are unfamiliar, TWA was an airline that operated from the 1920's to the early 2000's. Visiting this space was an absolute dream come true. I literally felt like I was in an episode of Mad Men. From the retro decor, to the amazing panoramic views of Manhattan, to Frank Sinatra playing over the sound system, I couldn't help but feel inspired. Aside from the amazing vintage furniture and items, the lounge also houses TWA travel posters, flight attendant uniforms throughout the decades and a flight departure display board. They even keep TAB soda and candy cigarettes stocked in the lounge, which I of course used as a prop for these photos.
If you are in NYC, I would definitely recommend visiting the lounge! Since it is located in One World Trade Center, security is very strict, for obvious reasons, so you cannot just walk in. To schedule an appointment, all you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can schedule a visit for yourself, with a larger group or even book the space for an event. Now I'm seriously considering hosting a Mad Men themed party here...
Thank you TWA for letting me live out my Megan Draper fantasies for the day!
