Fleet Week next week!

Not to be missed around these parts, Fleet Week with the Parade of Tall Ships floats off (stepping off might be risky) next Wednesday at 8:10 am from the Verrazano Narrows bridge and heads up the Hudson River north of the George Washington Bridge.

The Parade of Sail and The Military Parade of Ships which again starts just after 8 am is followed at 10 am by the The Military Parade of Ships. Both will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of Francis Scott Key penning 'The Star Spangled Banner'.

Watch the ships for fleet week by Newport ferry and walk over to classy new restaurant in Newport, Jersey City..."Skylark on the Hudson"! "Wow" bar, perfectly made martinis! and well experienced bartenders. Worth checking out boats and bar!
