Gateway National Recreation Area: Floyd Bennett Field Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Floyd Bennett Field is not the kind of park you’d expect to find deep in Brooklyn, yet there it is, a long walk or a short bus ride from the end of the 2 and the 5 subway lines. Opening in 1931 as New York City’s first airport and converted into a naval air station during World War II, this piece of land has been transformed from one of the loudest and busiest places in the five boroughs to one of the most peaceful. Today, the primitive campground is divided into five small groups: Tamarack, Goldenrod, Amelia Earhart, Wiley A, and Wiley B. Campers who wish to shower can pay ($) to use the facilities at Aviator Sports Center nearby. Sites 35 and 36 are handicapped accessible. Fish or kayak in Jamaica Bay, test your accuracy at the Floyd Bennett Field Archery Range, or cross the bridge to Jacob Riis Park for a dip in the Atlantic. Alcohol and pets are not permitted at Floyd Bennett Field."
