‘Thursday Fields’ captures the bike racing culture at Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field

Floyd Bennet Field was New York City’s first airport in the 1930’s, though it didn’t last long in that capacity. It’s had many incarnations since then, and it’s now part of the National Park system. The runways and taxiways are still there, and a couple of die-hard promoters run bike races in the spring and summer months.
