Presented with Peace Out and Motorcycle Man

Synopsis

A surprisingly diverse cast of characters gathers every Thursday evening at a defunct airport in Brooklyn. Native New Yorkers and new immigrants, Wall Street traders and construction tradesmen, they come to race bicycles on Floyd Bennett Field’s crumbling, windswept tarmac.
The competition is merciless. The rewards are many.
Thursday Fields is a portrait of New York City’s current-day melting pot in action.
