​In 1946, the city presented the design for the central terminal of New York International/Idlewild Airport. The scheme, designed by architecture firm Harrison & Abramovitz, called for a grand and impressive central administration and terminal building topped by a control tower with an undulating concourse arranged around it, providing a total of 86 gates.
