Synopsis: Although New York City was slowly recognizing the need for a municipal airport in the late 1920s, it sought to regain prominence by constructing the most advanced airport of its day. Construction in the far reaches of Brooklyn was started on October 29, 1929, the day of the stock market crash that heralded the Great Depression. The airport was named posthumously for Floyd Bennett, a Brooklyn native, Navy pilot, and Medal of Honor winner. Unfortunately, because of many factors--including poor timing, politics, and remoteness from Manhattan--the airfield was a commercial failure. Its advanced features, however, made it a mecca for private aircraft and the site of numerous record-breaking flights.

About the Author: Aviation historian Richard V. Porcelli, author of Arcadia’s NAS Atlantic City and numerous articles, tells how the Navy became an early tenant in a move that would impact the airfield’s destiny. In 1941, the Navy’s presence led to the establishment of NAS New York, which played a key role in the wartime delivery of planes from numerous area factories. After the war, it served as an important Naval Air Reserve base until its closure in 1971. Today, the National Park Service maintains the Art Deco architectural design and historic integrity of this unique airfield.
