For those daring travelers willing to pass through LaGuardia Airport, two New York City artists are hoping to help you pass the hours you spend waiting by offering custom written short stories in the terminal.
Two weeks ago, inside Terminal A at LaGuardia, Lexie Smith and Gideon Jacobs set up their station, which offers patrons a free short story to be written during their flight experience. Upon arrival at their destinations, a custom short story is delivered to the traveler’s phone, according to The Post.
Jacobs said they begin writing a story as soon as someone gives them a request, which is usually on the way to their flight gate. The deadline for the story’s completion is the landing of the lucky patron’s plane.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey granted the pair permission to set up their station in a storefront that was once home to the Hudson News.
The Queens Council on the Arts is sponsoring the project, dubbed Landing Pages, along with the Port Authority. A stipend of $3,000 was given to Smith and Jacobs for materials and whatever else they need to execute their unique idea.
Every story that the two compose is displayed on their website, along with the date it was written, as well as the flight and arrival time of the traveler who submitted the request for that particular creation.
These two artistic wonder writers have found an out of the box way to help travelers cope with the otherwise dismal commuting experience that the airport under construction currently offers.
