Title

Flushing Airport Map

Description

A copy of a map depicting the Flushing Airport and surrounding neighborhood. Originally opened in 1927, the airport was the busiest in New York before it was overtaken by LaGuardia. However, it remained in operation until it was finally abandoned in 1984. Lying a few miles north of Queens College, it would have been the closest airfield to its Air Force ROTC detachment.
