Amsterdam Schiphol to JFK New York
Each and every time I travel from Schiphol airport in the Netherlands to JFK in New York, I am struck by how totally depressing JFK is. For being one of the most happening cities in the world, New York certainly does not put down the best welcome mat. I have been to third world countries with more impressive airports. I know I'm being harsh and horrible but it's true!
But instead of harboring on the negative, I want to share the Holland Boulevard at Schiphol Airport which is teeming with avante garde, cutting edge design that not only promotes traditional Dutch cultural design, but mixes it with fresh contemporary and surprising twists.
While getting a bite to eat before our morning flight back to New York this summer, I felt uplifted while seating ourselves at this table that seemed to have been injected with steroids. It was a delightful "Alice in Wonderland" experience for me so I can only imagine that for my 4-foot-tall daughters Mia Soleil and Saskia Luna it must have been even more fun.
Come on JFK...you've got some of the best designers in the world right at your doorstep...step it up!
