Camping in NYC? US Interior secretary says yes



Published: Mon, June 13, 2011 @ 5:18 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — Many visitors to New York plan their trips to include shopping, a Broadway show and a hotel with fresh, clean sheets.

Sleeping bags under the stars? Not so much.

But Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the federal government will help to develop the nation’s largest urban campground at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn.

Floyd Bennett Field was the city’s first municipal airport but is essentially unused for aviation, except for police helicopters. It has been managed by the National Park Service since 1972.

Salazar was in New York today to announce several initiatives aimed at improving access to the outdoors in the New York region.

He said the campground at Floyd Bennett Field will expand from five campsites to 90 and may ultimately grow to 600 campsites.
