New York Kindling

Camping in the wilds of… Brooklyn?

Floyd Bennett Field, a former airfield in Brooklyn in Gateway National Recreation Area, is being turned into a 90-site campground. An aerial view reveals it’s already got plenty of trees, so it might not be like camping in a big parking lot.

Sites will be about 30′ square with the usual fire ring and picnic table (but no electric service or other hookups). 50 new sites will open up for the 4th of July weekend, followed by more next year. Because they will have no showers, they’ll be designated “primitive.” So there you have it – primitive camping in New York City!

Since everything in NYC is more expensive, I wonder if these sites will run $100 a night…?
