from greenkampong.com: Old Brooklyn Airport to Be Transformed into Giant Urban Campground
Park officials have now decided to turn the old air field into an urban campground, not only to promote camping to city dwellers, but also as a way to provide a more budget friendly alternative to vacationing. The airport is currently home to five basic campsites, and will eventually expand to 600 different places. The park will also be offering camp workshops throughout the summer, plus it has a community garden, a bird watch center, and new developed grasslands.
