I guess I didn't have enough 1960's last Friday, because the next day after visiting the lounge, I made the trek back to the TWA hotel at JFK airport. I recently found a TWA bag when I was out vintage shopping, so there was really no better place to shoot it than the TWA hotel, specifically outside of The Connie, the airplane turned bar.
Since I really had my heart set on shooting photos of this bag here, I didn't want to wait around for anyone to go with me, so I packed up my tripod and headed to the airport on Saturday afternoon. I guess since I was alone, people assumed I was part of the hotel, especially because they have people dressed up in the TWA uniforms throughout the years walking around the hotel. I shared this anecdote on my Instagram stories how one woman even told me she thought I was "a little nuts" after I told her I wasn't part of the hotel and just dressed up that way because I like too...
After taking my photos outside The Connie, I headed inside the plane and ordered a Roy Rogers mocktail. I also brought along some vintage drink stirrers my aunt recently gave me to photograph. They had a new vintage car parked out front and a new seating area that wasn't there the first time I went. I also stopped in the gift shop and picked up a few little things for a giveaway.
Visiting the TWA hotel makes me so happy, it truly feels like going back in time. I can't wait to go back again. If you want more information about it, you can check out my post about my first trip here.
