  1. I’ve never seen Brooks’ mural at LGA, so I am glad to know it exists, or did they cover it up again now that they’ve built a new airport? The more art that is within an airport, the better my experience and travels are. Airport art is the perfect antidote to the crazy hustle and bustle of getting to the gate on time for the flight!
