Equipped with rockers, swings, and Adirondack chairs typical of those found at expensive hotels and resorts, Southwest Airlines® is giving all of New York an al fresco lounge to celebrate its new service to LaGuardia Airport.

Plus, stop by the Porch with your laptop, iPod, or cell phone for a different type of refueling power outlets are available to keep all of your devices going.

Bring your lunch, your book, your friend, or just yourself. Its a fantastic new way to enjoy NYs most beautiful park.
