A trip to New York City just got a whole lot cheaper, if you're willing to pitch a tent. The National Park Service is creating new campsites at Brooklyn's Floyd Bennett Field, a former airport once used by Amelia Earhart and Howard Hughes. The field, part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, currently hosts five campsites, with 47 more expected in the next few weeks. Over the next two years, the park service will build a total of 90 sites, creating America's largest urban park campground. The sites are $20 per night, and online booking at recreation.gov will be available by July 4th weekend. Besides touring the Big Apple, campers can also take advantage of fishing, hiking, biking, and kayaking in the park, with swimming and beaches available at nearby Jacob Riis Park.
