In 1931, aviation legends such as Howard Hughes and Amelia Earhart traversed the hallowed halls of Floyd Bennett Field, New York City's first municipal airport. Today, the same site harbors Aviator Sports and Events Center, which accommodates recreation in all of its forms, equipped with 20,000 square foot indoor field house, which includes newly resurfaced hardwood courts and new turf field, two outdoor synthetic-turf fields, and an outdoor space for events that can seat up to 4,000 people—the same number of people it takes to crack open a life-size Big Bird piñata. Twin NHL-regulation rinks host open-skate sessions, a majority of which are held on Rink B, every day of the week, with skates as late as 11 p.m. on weekends. Inside the center is a brand new CrossFit gym, which offers workout classes Monday through Saturday. Only youngsters enjoy summer or after-school camps, but adults and kids alike can take advantage of a roster of sports and leagues, including flag football and rock climbing, ideal for those looking to shorten morning commutes by cutting through the quarry.
At any given time, Dream Arena's ceiling might echo with several collective sounds: the squeak of shoes pivoting on a basketball court, the slam of a perfectly spiked volleyball landing in bounds, and the soft crunch of soccer cleats digging into the indoor turf. Within the mammoth indoor gymnasium, athletes of all kinds run amok, shooting soccer balls just feet away from hoopsters sharpening their free throws. The staff manifests its main goal—unleashing everyone's potential—in a variety of programs, from open pickup games and team practices to youth leagues that teach kids the value of healthy competition as they see who can chug the most Gatorade.
