Dead Horse Bay/Floyd Bennett Field (Brooklyn by the Sea: Part 3)

Dead Horse Bay and Floyd Bennett Field, like Plumb Beach, are part of the Gateway National Recreation Area.



Dead Horse Bay’s main attraction is its vintage garbage (Video).







The Historic Aircraft Restoration Project (H.A.R.P.) is a unique museum and active workshop in an old hangar at Floyd Bennett Field. The volunteer staff there is devoted to the history and preservation of American aviation. They can be remarkably friendly and informative, showing their appreciation to visitors who make the trek to this obscure corner of Brooklyn.

    Hope you found Dead Horse Bay without a problem and escaped any tick bites. Thanks for the web-site card. You have a good eye and sense of history and silent space in these photo images. While I am aware of some “Summer Sailstice” festivities to promote sailing, it seems that the Deep Creek Yacht Club at the Gateway Marina is not participating, so no photo-op from this part of Brooklyn.
