  • Freud and Junge would have fun with that dream!

    Planes from Brooklyn to Manhattan are non-starters, but not quite as absurd as one might assume.

    The only way to take a plane to Manhatan is a sea-plane -- there are 2 seaplane [] bases [] on Manhatan, but none in Brooklyn (not counting Bennet Field's closed military one), alas for your dream-plan. Brooklyn yacht clubs would probably object to a seaplane taxiing in for a pickup, but perhaps your airtaxi could meet you at a public launching dock?

    But if we open our fantasies up to other machines of the air, there are helicopters from Long Island [], including the Queens's JFK, Laguardia [] airports and Newark too. Brooklyn shares the west end of LI with Queens, but sadly, Brooklyn proper's only airport/heliports are Governors Island []'s Army Air Field [] (ex-AAF, apparently closed by USCG well before it became a national monument []?), Bennet Field (Heliport for NYPD only, and itinerant blimps), and the Port Authority/ConEd's private Charles Poletti Heliport.

    So you'd still need to catch a $30 cab to one of the Queens Aiprorts (or Flushing) to catch your $495.00 air-taxi to Manhattan.
