R/C racetrack at Floyd Bennett Field

December 4th, 2014

Floyd Bennett Field, the city's first municipal airport, is now part of Gateway National Recreation Area. The defunct airport is used for a wide variety of activities; it's currently home to, among other things, a public campground, an expansive community garden, an enormous sports and recreation center, the NYPD's aviation and driver training units, the Historic Aircraft Restoration Project, a model airplane field, and, as evidenced above, a racetrack for radio-controlled cars. Look at those little cars go!
