Todd P’s Unamplified Acoustic BBQ is Sunday (new location)

Floyd Bennett Field

“The new location is a pristine secluded beach area called Raptor Point, at the North end of the main (decommissioned) runway of the abandoned airport, right on Jamaica Bay.

Just before the pier entrance, the “Shore Parkway Bikeway” aka “Gateway Rockaway Greenway” bicycle lane veers to the right off the traffic circle. Follow this scenic bikelane along Jamaica Bay for 3.8 miles, veering to the left when there is an option, until you see the entrance to Floyd Bennett Field.

| WALKING / BIKING DIRECTIONS WITHIN FLOYD BENNETT FIELD |
Enter the park from Flatbush Ave. You will see the “AVIATOR” sports recreation theme park and also football and baseball fields. Walk or bike to the left and behind this complex. You will find yourself on a wide former runway, running East / West. Turn left and follow the runway to its terminus, where a North / South oriented runway begins at a right angle. Turn right and follow this runway to its end. Raptor Point is at the Northern end of this runway, right on Jamaica Bay.
