Floyd Bennett Field is an old airstrip that has been taken over by the National Parks Service. If you've ever driven, or ridden your bike to Rockaway Beach— like I have—then you've probably passed it without even realizing it. What's tucked away behind long retired cement runways is a little piece of Brooklyn paradise that might surprise you.

Complete with a well stocked camp store, bathrooms, running water and picnic areas, Floyd Bennett Field hosts a slew of well maintained tent sites. Each site has it's own fire ring and picnic table. The foliage and wooded area surrounding the tent sites will let you forget for a little while that you're still in one of the biggest cities in the world—which is why Camp Getaway is aptly named.
