The magnificent Tiffany ceiling of the Union Station Hotel bathed in morning light. The hotel was originally the railroad station for the city, built between 1898-1900, in an era when travel was exotic and unique. Men kissed their families and went off to four wars from it's platforms, presidents and gangsters passed though, and millions of ordinary citizens traveling east and west, north and south, departed or arrived on the tracks along it's lower level. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977, underwent an $11 million renovation in 2007 and is run by Wyndham Historic Hotels.

Travelers were stuck in the tunnel between Terminals A and B for 20 minutes while authorities checked the airport.
