6. New York City Department of Sanitation Training Center Here

The New York City Department of Sanitation houses their training facility on Floyd Bennett Field. The training academy was created in 1950 even though workers have been formally trained since the early 20th century.

According to a profile done by the New York Times, the Sanitation Department trains about 450 people before the snow season comes in training sessions lasting four weeks at a time. The empty runways and large hangars allow trainees to learn to load, dump, and drive the massive garbage trucks between rows of orange cones.
