Meet the Boys in Uniforms of Fleet Week


Lea Winkler

Ahoy, sailors. It’s that blessed time of year again for New Yorkers: Fleet Week, when the Coast Guard, Navy, and Marines descend upon the city in regiments of cute uniforms over the Memorial Day weekend. Certainly, there are a lot of big boats and ornate military vessels floating on the Hudson River to gawk at, but the real eye candy is in the streets. Here, we caught up with the intrepid boys of Fleet Week as they descended upon the isle of Manhattan. To a man, they were undeniably shipshape.
