Me.
Floyd Bennett Field
Brooklyn, NY

Story 15 … I’m headed back for some airstrip camping.
.
What’s that? You’ve never camped on or near a runway before? That’s a pity. A couple of years ago on a lark, my good friend Jenna and I camped for a night at Floyd Bennett Field, a decommissioned airport at the edge of Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, NY.
.
Surreal is the best word I’ve got for it. We drove down a runway to get to the camp offices -- the campground is run by the National Park Service -- and down another runway to find our campsite. And while most of the sites have some semblance of seclusion and trees, we were a late booking and wound up on the edge of an enormous parking lot near an old airport hangar. We had a picnic table, fire pit … and a small set of bleachers.
.
A full moon over Jamaica Bay, with the lights of the city in the distance, made up for the spookiness of the looming hangar. Though a party boat cruising by at about 3 a.m. along with departing and arriving planes from nearby JFK Airport re-reminded us we weren’t exactly at Yellowstone.
.
It was the craziest camping experience of my life, so when Jenna emailed me an invite to an annual group outing, I grabbed it. I officially RSVP’d today to join Jenna and a bunch of people I’ve never met to go “Floyding” in a few weeks.
.
Events include “long walks down scenic abandoned runways,” historic aircraft tours, archery, remote control car driving, “neighbor discovery,” meditative airplane-watching, silent disco, and a possible silent disco II on the tarmac.
.
Two years ago, I won this souvenir at a nearby arcade and have kept it on my desk ever since. I’m both fascinated and slightly terrified to find out what my “Floyding” souvenir will wind up being this year.
