Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn, NY

After visiting Dead Horse Bay we went across the street to Floyd Bennett Field. This is a huge area, apparently, and we only saw a small piece of it. This was taken on one of the abandoned runways, looking towards Manhattan.

Ever since working for the Mobil Corporation in the 1980s I’ve been drawn to oil company memorabilia. You can just barely see the Gulf logo on this abandoned hanger.

A little graffiti, which there wasn’t a lot of, come to think of it.

While we were there there was this strange circle around the sun. I couldn’t get the entire circle in my shot with the camera and lens I was using, but it went all the way around the sun. Does anyone know what caused this? Ah, just googled it. It’s called a “sun halo.”
