Ever since I got into aviation, I've always wanted to improve the industry, the photography aspect of it and give something back to the community that has welcomed me so warmly. I've been in seclusion for months during construction, but I am finally done and can present to you, the Phil Derner Aviation Photography Resort!!!!

Take your family and friends to relax at the same spots along the shoreline of New York's Flushing Bay overlooking La Guardia Airport where you've seen such shots as these taken for a day in amazing adventure and good times!

Just getting to the shoreline is a fun adventure as it is, with a thrilling mountain descent.




Well, you've made it here. Just relax and have a seat overlooking the airport in our Southwest-style luxury seating.




And what better things to combine like our love for aviation and a nice cold one? Sit back and enjoy with a few beers. Just a few.




Worried that you're going to miss the big game? NO WORRIES!!!! You'll catch all the action in our fully furnished entertainment centers.




If fishing is your deal, or even if you want to get closer to the action, take a a long walk out to the end of our exclusive fishing pier!!




If the pier is does not meet your needs, we also have boating. Just take one of our yachts out for a spin at no extra cost in your family package.




We all need to rest a bit, so why not just lay back and tan a little bit. You'll feel like you were on some remote beach in the Caribbean.






Hanging out like that all day can get you hot in a hurry. Cool down by going for a dip in our water that's as crystal clear as the Bahamas.






Don't worry about the bodies floati- ummm.....fish swimming around your feet. They are partying themselves! We all have a good time here!




Hop on out of the water to decontam-....clean off before dinner in our lovely natural spring showers.




Man, so much fun packed into one place! When you come here, you'll never want to leave (if you live)!

Packages for a family start at $2,499 a day per person, and that does not include food, beverages, fishing poles, first aid gear, climbing rope, radioactive contamination insurance or grizzly bear repellent.

We are not responsible for loss of children in between rocks, if they get impaled by falling tree branches or swallowed up by Loch Ness style sea-going mutant fish.

Just email me at BigPhilNYC@yahoo.com to learn hwo to reserve your vacation, where spots are filling up fast!

Let the good times roll!



(I'll explain all of this in a later post)

I can "donate" some more "furniture" to your resort... Big grin Normally it's picked up once a week by the "bellboys" (in a big green truck), but hey... It's always nice to serve a good cause!

Good one Phil!  Smile

Don't forget the Futterman Fiesta every Friday from 4PM to 4AM, folks.


Mirrodie sure lost out on a great deal for his reception! Guess ya' win some and you lose some... Although, my parents are leaving for an anniversary vacation in Vegas next weekend--break out a roll of quarters and they're sure to drop LAS in a heartbeat!

Phil,

Awesome...you just can't get that same feel here in Houston...Reminded me fondly of growing up in New Jersey...
Hopefully you'll give airline employees a good discount.

Hey all,,
First, thanks for your comments about my photos. Assumign you were talking about the plane photos, I was happy how they came out, especially that ATA 738. It's shots like that which got me interested in doing all of this.

As for the shoreline, I made a joke about it, but it really pisses me off. I should note that ALL of those pictures were only taken with a 30 foot radius. that's THIRTY FEET AROUND. I hardly had to walk around at all to get all those shots. That's frighteningly pathetic. My town was not always like that.

I've contacted local politicans in regards to this and hope to see action taken soon.

As for visiting the shore, I can assure you that it's comfortable and safe. Gary, Vasco, I can still show you a good time and nice scenery, don't worry.

-Phil

What are you suggesting? lol


Good luck bringing this to the attention of the politicians, as you'd need it. What kind of action do you hope to see though? The most they'll probably do is put a sign up saying 'BEWARE' blah blah blah, like they did at Howard Beach--there's a sign saying specifically, among other things, not to eat any mutated fish.

If it were a public park, sidewalk, etc, then there would probably be some action. But for some reason, I don't think it's so congested on that little shoreline that too many complaints are being filed, let alone taken into conideration. But you live in the area though, so I don't know how your neighbors feel about it.


Definately bring it to their attention though. Maybe you can entise them with some special rates...

Hehe, I don't think the politicians will care as much as to clean up the shorline, they first have to clean themselves up.

hey, the day you took that ATA 738 pic was the day i was working spot 6A at USAir Express. that EMB-145 in the bottom right side of the pic is my gate, and the guy carrying the cone is the guy i was working with that day. i was busy parking that airplane. amazing, you get so close to fame and then phil just crops you out... lol.

it is sad at the state of the waterfronts in this city. the ritzy neighborhoods get promenades while places like greenpoint and williamsburg (my neighborhoods) are left with waste transfer facilites and ever expanding sewage treatment plants. sorry to rain on your parade phil, but i doubt you'll make any headway in getting that spot cleaned up, that is unless you finance it yourself. after fighting the city for at elast 5 years on a powerplant issue we are still at risk of getting stuck with it here in bk.

Cancidas,

I did have to crop that shot a bit (just a little bit), so you might be in the frame, or in one of the other 90 shots I took that morning.

Hit me up and I'll check.
