NYC Fleet Week Brings U.S. and Foreign Naval Crews To Visit Brooklyn

NYC Fleet Week, which takes place every Memorial Day Weekend, brings thousands of young men and women serving our and other nations’ navies to our fine city to visit tourist attractions and take part in numerous special events. It has been a tradition since 1935.

This year’s Fleet Week celebration is highlighted in Brooklyn by the previously reported 2012 Operation Sail Parade (OpSail) and Parade of Ships.

Feel like taking part? An event guide for the coming weekend is here.
