we went camping at an abandoned airport in brooklyn- historic floyd bennett field, where amelia earhart and howard hughes once flew. those are runways in the pictures, not roads.
now bramble covered and in decay, the parks service rents camp sites on the grounds for $20.00 a night! between two bays, close to the ocean, in one direction is coney island, the other far rockaway beach. during the day it was still warm enough to swim!
