It’s the time of year again when thousands of servicemen and women from the US Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard arrive at the New York Harbor for New York City Fleet Week 2009.
A tradition since 1984, we have welcomed active military ships and their crews to our city for a few days of fun. From May 20-26th, you can enjoy some events like military demonstrations, musical performances or take a tour of these ships they call home. The best part…these guys get to spend a day or two enjoying the Big Apple.
So if your walking down Fifth Avenue or having a cocktail at mad46 and you spot one of these fine men and women of the U.S. Naval Services, be sure to tip your hat and give them a warm welcome.
