Thousands of sailors, marines and coast guardsmen from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard are participating in this year's annual Fleet Week New York, taking place May 25 – June 1. Since 1984, Fleet Week New York celebrates the sea services with events throughout the city and immediate surrounding areas. This event provides an opportunity for citizens to meet sailors, marines and coast guardsmen, as well as see, first-hand, the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services. In Times Square, there are military demonstrations and displays throughout the week. Several participating ships are also open for public viewing.
