HPN (aka Westchester County) made a whole lot of sense with non-stop flights to West Palm Beach and much better fares than I could get at Bradley.
If you’ve never been here (and I’m not sure I’ve ever been here) this is an airport ill suited for the 21st Century. Think Manhattan studio apartment. It’s small. Every square inch is in use.
The airport’s website advises you check before driving here because they often run out of parking spaces! No such problem today, but it does make you stop-and-think.
I set the destination in my iPhone’s GPS and headed west on the Merritt the Parkway. Getting to the exit is no problem. From there you question every curve and turn!
Is it possible a little country road like this could lead to an airport?
The road winds through “Back Country” Greenwich. I went by expansive/expensive homes and estates with high walls and sturdy metal gates. The smaller houses I passed were impeccably maintained and well landscaped. It reminded me of the section of Beverly Hills just up above the Flats area.
Considering how small this airport is I’m surprised by the number of flights. There are two flights non-stops to West Palm Beach within 15 minutes of each other! The PA system is in constant update mode.
My flight should have WiFi… but then again so should this terminal. Though there are two airport maintained hotspots this laptop can see neither seems to work.
I have ‘alternative’ methods.
