NYC - The Official Guide

William Fitts Ryan Visitor Center


Located at Gateway National Recreation Area’s Floyd Bennett Field, this historic former air terminal—once part of New York City’s first municipal airport—has been rebuilt over the past three years. Painstaking refurbishment efforts have restored the building’s original paintings and interiors to their original 1930s glory. Visitors can check out historical exhibitions, complete with archival footage of the terminal and aircraft, as well as “pilot” their own mini-plane and learn about airplane design.
