Fleet Week 2010 New York City has officially begun on the 26th of May and as always, is expected to be full of interesting things for New Yorkers.

Fleet Week is the time of the year when active military ships deployed in overseas operations dock in a major city for one week and sailors walk the streets of the city and see what the streets really feel and look like.

Fleet Week is celebrated to the fullest by honoring the men and women who've served in the U.S. Navy and the Marine Corps and have given their lives so that we stay free. Different drinks are named in their honor and served in a variety of bars and restaurants in the city.

The most charming thing about Fleet Week New York City is that the sailors along with their big ships visit Manhattan and everyone has a good time.

In Fleet Week 2010 New York City, there are also going to be very interesting activities in the big ships scheduled for a visit by the commoners who have the opportunity to examine everything up-close.
