The retro-chic TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport wants you to think of the Brat Pack, the Beatles and the soaring grace of Eero Saarinen’s futuristic terminal, dedicated to the then-new jet age. What the hotel doesn’t want is for guests to hear even a murmur of jet-engine noise from adjacent taxiways. To achieve this solitude, the hotel sheathed both wings of the new 512-room hotel with a 4.5-inch glass curtain wall, second-thickest in the world, to hush JFK’s madding bustle. Draw shut the blackout shades in every room, and you’re in a virtually silent chamber save for the low whoosh of air conditioning.

NEW YORK (AP) — Anna Sorokin traveled in celebrity circles and tossed $100 tips — all the more reason to believe she was the German heiress she said she was. But behind the jet-set lifestyle and pricey threads, prosecutors say, was a fraudster who bilked friends, banks and hotels for a taste of the high life. Sorokin, 28, lived in luxury New York City hotel rooms she couldn’t afford, promised a friend an all-expenses paid trip to Morocco and then stuck her with the $62,000 bill, and peddled bogus bank statements in a quest for a $22 million loan, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office alleges. On Wednesday, the one-time darling of the Big Apple social scene is scheduled to stand trial on grand larceny and theft of services charges alleging she swindled $275,000 in a 10-month odyssey that saw her jetting to Omaha and Marrakesh before landing in a cell at Rikers Island. “Her overall scheme has been to claim to be a wealthy German heiress with approximately … [Read more...] about A woman in New York City lived life as a German heiress.
