Floyd Bennett Field__081.jpg

Large white globe at Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn, New York. Floyd Bennett Field was New York City's first municipal airport, later a naval air station, and is now a park. Located in southeast Brooklyn, the field was created by connecting Barren Island and a number of smaller marsh islands to the mainland by filling the channels between them with sand pumped from Jamaica Bay's bottom. Since 1972, Floyd Bennett Field is a part of Gateway National Recreation Area, managed by the National Park Service.
