Floyd Bennett, Brooklyn

By Nabewise


Floyd Bennett is a tiny neighborhood in southeast Brooklyn named for the large, adjacent, and now-defunct airfield. Very similar to neighboring Mill Basin, Floyd Bennett is not particularly easy to get to. Real estate tends to be single-family homes or office space. Benefits of the neighborhood include water access, the large parkland, and the occasional NY artist checking out the abandoned airfield.

I jog through this neighborhood when I take my dog out and it seems alright. There really is not a whole lot of stuff there. It isn’t too expensive and they are single family homes but you can find that in other places and be in a less remote place with far more to do.Harold F.

I’m one of the few and the proud who live right here. This situation is perfect for me because I own my own car, rarely have cause to go to Manhattan, and I have the giant field next door to hang with my family. Love Floyd Bennett!Jim K.
