Fleet Week in NYC. Fleet Week returns this year, after a one-year hiatus, due to federal budget cuts. But, it’s back with over 1,500 service members participating in tours, parades and demonstrations. It’s a great opportunity to show your support for the military and introduce children to the military world and life on the sea. There are five ships to tour, all free and open to the public at both Pier 92 and Sullivans Pier on Staten Island.
During Fleet Week, the USS Oak Hill will be docked at Pier 92 in Manhattan, and will be open for tours. The other ships that can be toured are the USS Cole, the USS McFaul, and the US Coast Guard Cutter Katherine Walker – all of them docked at Sullivans Pier on Staten Island, and the US Coast Guard Cutter Campbell, which will be at Pier 92 with the USS Oak Hill.
Special Event: The U.S. Coast Guard Silent Drill Team will perform on the street outside the front entrance to the NY Stock Exchange.
