American Airpower Museum

The American Airpower Museum is Non-Profit 501C3 Aviation Museum and State Chartered Educational Foundation. A unique Museum in that many of the historic Aircraft are operational and fly regularly during the spring and summer months. The Museum is located at historic Republic Airport in Farmingdale NY. The Airport established back in the 1920s by Fairchild and Grumman Aviation. Eventually the home of Seversky Aviation during the 1930s it would evolve into Republic Aviation in 1939. In 1941 Republic produced the P-47 Thunderbolt which would go on to be the most mass produced fighter of WWII with over 15,000 built. Republic would go on to build the F-84, F-105, and A-10 Fighter Aircraft all right here in Long Island NY. Today the American Airpower Museum calls one of the last three surviving Republic Hangars home.

This awesome museum is located on the Republic Airport, the former airfield of the famous Republic Aviation Corporation, at Farmingdale, Long Island, New York. It has a remarkable collection of historic combat aircraft, many of them in actual flight condition, that usually perform at air...MoreThanks for taking the time to write a review.

The intimate parlor setting was perfect for the performance, but seats are a bit uncomfortable and sometimes it's difficult to see clearly when a tall person is in front of you.The acts were very good.

The Adventure Park at Long Island

Located in Wheatley Heights, NY on five spectacular wooded acres of the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds, The Adventure Park at Long Island is the area's most exciting new attraction. The Adventure Park appeals to outdoor fun-seekers age 7 through adult and features multiple zip lines and aerial ropes challenge courses.

Reviewed By Denise A - Port Washington, New York

Everything was fantastic. Only suggestion is they need a few more staff to help with the warm up and some of the easier courses as we were held up quite a bit by some kids the weren't proficient on the equipment.

Belmont Lake State Park

Reviewed By LongIslandGiirl - Deer Park, New York

I have lived in the area for yeRs, and have frequented the park every summer , going on o picnics, BBQ's and the like. However, this year in efforts to stay healthy, I have begun walking and/or bike riding thru here on my lunch hour, since I normally sit a lot for my job.
There is nothing better to clear your head and enjoy nature. I go through the trails which are safe, although I am often with a co-worker. The birds and geese, ducks etc are plentiful and the lake is just so nice. You can rent a rowboat or paddle boat for a foster and do the lake if you wish,
Nice picnic facilities, and clean bathrooms.

Drew Patrick Spa

Reviewed By Vanessalynn222 - Levittown, New York

In case the actual services and therapists aren't enough to keep you coming back, Miguel at the desk really makes the experience perfect. He is a prime example of what excellent service should be, greeting you with a warm, individual welcome/welcome back and makes sure anything you may need for a great experience, you get, from start to finish. Working 2 jobs it is hard to come here as often as I'd like, but there is no other spa I would chose to treat myself to a relaxing day off than Drew Patrick! Thank you for another great massage Olga !
