We’ve all heard of JFK --New York’s iconic airport, named after one of the most legendary presidents; this place is packed full of history. It’s got its complications too --confusingly, there isn’t a terminal 3 or a terminal 6! Despite these interesting quirks, to most JFK is merely the place of their layover. Read on to learn about the three places you’ll want to stop at next time you're waiting for your flight.
This tech stop should be #1 on your list. Stocking the most up-to-date technology products,you’ll find everything you might have forgotten for your flight or may need on your trip. This store prides itself on quality products and knowledgeable staff eager to fulfill your tech needs. Don’t settle for those cheap and staticky headphones they offer you on the plane. Enjoy a musical melody instead through the Beoplay H4, Bang & Olufsen’s Bluetooth headphones. These headphones are wireless, so they won’t get caught when putting your carry on in the overhead. Find them in Terminal 5, twice in Terminal 8, and in the British Airways Terminal.
One of the top spots for food at JFK is the Uptown Brasserie. Located in Terminal 4, you can enjoy a mix of fine dining or on-the-go options. Open from 7 AM- 10 PM every day, their food and drinks menu is stocked with interesting options. The breakfast food is most favorable, but you can’t go wrong with the Crispy Skin Salmon for dinner. While you wait for your delicious meal to emerge, finish sending those important emails with the T-Mobile Tourist Plan, (21 days of mobile service when visiting the U.S.), and the Mophie Juice Pack Air --so your phone doesn’t die on you mid-send!
Need some quiet time? Sit back and relax in the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse. Located in Terminal 4, this lounge is sure to arouse a sense of serenity and peacefulness. Find a comfortable spot in any of the seating arrangements, plug in to finish some work, or even munch on some delicious eats. If you’re looking to get some quick Z’s in, bring your pocket-sized Beoplay A1 portable Bluetooth speaker to play some soothing sounds to lull you right to sleep.
