    Not arguing or doubting you --

    I see a Roberson R-22 ( black ) fly past my apartment window --- look at the sight ---- there it goes - flight path right over my head -- does his touch & goes out over the marshes --

    Another one goes by ( yellow ) - but much lower --- not a sigh of it on the site --- later on it flies out again but a little higher ---- yep the sight sees it --

      When they kick out your front door
      How you gonna come?
      With your hands on your head
      Or on the trigger of your gun?

          It's kinda like the Statue of Liberty. Locals never seem to get there.

            It's a busy place but honestly, not much for "tourists" to do and see unless you're an all out older aircraft buff.

            It was NYS's first municipal airport, soon overshadowed by Laguardia.

            The field is managed by the National Park Service. NYPD aviation as well as other units, USMC reserves and NYDOS have space there as well.

            Mountains of aircraft history was made there.

            There's HARP. older folks volunteering to restore a couple of planes in an unheated run down Hangar B. They have a lot of heart and seems to give many of them a purpose.

            The original control tower building is there and was recently rehab'd. The tunnels that lead from the building out under the tarmac to huge hydraulic stairs that used to work are still there although the stairs are paved over.

              Is it open to the public?

                  I remember when they changed the name of Idlewild to JFK.

                    That was a bit before my time.

                    La Guardia was originally North Beach Field.

                    The gentleman that sang at my wedding (RIP Matt) worked on the Boeing 314 Flying Boats at The Marine Air Terminal, which is now a landmark.

                      I was hired to contract and play with a band for the grand opening of a building at Floyd Bennet years ago. I can't remember if it was a museum or visitor center or something. They wanted big band type stuff so I put together a band. Two afternoons, Saturday and Sunday. Pretty cool gig. Geez time flys.

                          Not a lot. I’m just immature for my age.🥴

                            Looks like they caught the guy after he came back to rob the same bank again yesterday (and then went on to the Baldwin branch)

                                "Quinn is charged with two counts of petty larceny, two counts of third-degree robbery, fourth-degree grand larceny, third-degree attempted burglary and third-degree attempted robbery. He is scheduled to be arraigned later today."

                                He'll be home by 6PM due to concerns he may catch covid while awaiting trial.
                                Trial postponed due to covid concerns for jurors.
                                Case dismissed due to inability to perform "speedy trial" process.
