[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Construction began on the Kennedy Airport in April 1942 under a New York City contract for the placing of hydraulic fill over the marshy tidelands on the site of Idlelwild golf course. Initial plans called for a 1,000-acre airport, but it would eventually grow to five times that size. Commercial flights began July 1948. The airport was called Idlewild Airport before it was rededicated on December 24, 1963 as John F. Kennedy International Airport in memory of the nation's thirty-fifth president.

Kennedy International is the United States' leading international gateway. Over 80 airlines operate out of JFK.

This is one of the four photographs I was able to take inside the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York before I was approached by 3 National Guards telling me that photography is not allowed inside and outside the immediate vicinity of the JFK Airport. This happened inside the Terminal 4 Building.

The clerestory of the barrel roof is shown above with one of the entry doors shown beyond.
