Pan Am — few names better connote the optimism of the jet age than this fabled brand.
Behold the demolition of its iconic home at JFK. Pan Am may be a hip fashion accessory that even spawned a TV show, but its historic home was not immune to the all-too-common fate of other midcentury modern buildings.
Delta is tearing it down despite its placement on a prominent endangered buildings list.

Selection of menu from Alexander Girard-designed restaurant, La Fonda del Sol. Note the photo number: PLaza7-8800. A Brooklyn design shop was asking $500 for it framed. Would be a nice addition to the CBS Sunday Morning set. #girard #mimo #midcentury #mod #pop #sun #cbssundaymorning
