JFK AirTrain Passing The Former TWA Terminal

The landmark TWA terminal at JFK went empty and unused for quite some time after TWA's demise, but now its west side is used by Jet Blue Airways, an airline which continues to prosper and grow. The building is a registered landmark and cannot be torn down. From the air the building is said to resemble a bird with outstretched wings. In this scene, a single-car JFK AirTrain passes Terminal 5 heading to its next stop, Terminal 4W. Recently I saw an episode of "Law & Order" in which an airport shuttle bus parked in front of the old TWA Terminal was the scene of a murder.
