John F. Kennedy International Airport was originally known as Idle wild Airport, after the Idle-wild Golf Course that it displaced. The airport was envisioned as a reliever for La Guardia Airport, which had insufficient capacity in the late 1930. Construction began in 1943 by local firms such as the Edenwald Group headed by the late Charles Follini Sr., a decorated former FDNY fireman; about sixty million Dollar was initially spent, but only 1,000 acres (400 ha) of land on the site of the Idle-wild golf course were earmarked for use.
