Sailors and Marines at attention as they pass the World Trade Center

Fleet Week was reduced in size this year. As reported by the New York Times, “Three naval ships and two Coast Guard cutters, carrying about 1,500 sailors, Marines and Coast Guard members, came to the piers off the West Side of Manhattan and Staten Island this year, about a quarter as many as in previous Fleet Weeks, when aircraft carriers and ships from other navies were common.”

Following a week of aerial demonstrations, public ship tours and ceremonies throughout the New York City area, the U.S. Navy ships will depart Pier 92 in Manhattan and The Sullivans Pier in Staten Island at an unspecified time today.
