It's that time of the year when the streets are overrun by men in dapper uniform: Fleet Week! Many ships from the Navy, Coast Guard, and other countries will be coming into New York for a week of festivities, including a Parade of Ships (today), a Tug of War (Saturday), and a "Best of Chow" contest (Sunday). More information can be found at the Intrepid's website; the Intrepid is where many of the events will be held. But you'll be able to see the cute sailors in Midtown, either asking to have pictures taken or having people bombard them with picture requests.
