One of the area’s largest parks is Miller Field, which was an Unites States Army facility many moons ago. It has since been transformed as a recreation area for Staten Island’s youth, with many soccer field, baseball/softball teams, as well as a cricket field. It is owned and operated by the National Park Service and is part of Gateway National Park. An interesting piece of history also happened above the Park. In 1960, two planes collided above Miller Field. One crashed in the northwest corner of the now park, the other plane crashed across the bay in Park Slope Brooklyn. It was, at the time, the worst plane crash in commercial history due to the people that perished in the crash.
