Airports are best viewed in the rear view mirror. And anyone who's flown through LaGuardia Airport in New York City knows it's even better from a book or on television, hundreds and hundreds of miles away.
That's changing. American Express's Centurion Lounge, which opened last month, is an oasis from the madness that is LGA. Have 45 minutes to kill before your flight to Las Vegas? Pop into the lounge and enjoy seasonal food prepared by Cédric Vongerichten, the executive chef at Perry St in Manhattan. There are many, many other amenities, too. Take a look inside and start happily making plans to go to LaGuardia—a statement that's never been uttered before.
