After an evening stroll in Central Park, I headed up towards Times Square, where the boys were out to play!... So many were being stopped and asked for pictures to be taken... how could I not join in!.
over the next couple of days numerous events took place in Times Square and throughout New York, sand building sculptures, marine bands, tug-of war as well as the opportunity to board the naval ships docked at Pier 88 and Staten Island .
Loved the Sailor offering Free Hugs.... how cute!
Fleetweek was an unexpected surprise for my trip... next time will be sure to stay a little longer when the sailors are in town!!
