Guide: Fleet Week New York 2023 sails into New York City
The U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard are returning again to New York in person in 2023.
“The U.S. Navy is excited to be back in New York to showcase how the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard provide us with an advantage at sea,” said Rear Adm. Christopher S. Gray, commander of the Navy Region Mid-Atlantic (CNRMA).
This year, the U.S. Navy is joined by three NATO allies, Great Britain, Italy, and Canada.
"Preserving our military advantage and upholding the rules-based international order depend on a strong integration with our joint force, allies, and partners. We operate and train together and it is an honor to have them join us for this celebration. New York is always an incredible host and we can’t wait for all of the brave men and women serving our country, and those of our allied guests, to get an opportunity to experience all the city offers," says Rear Adm. Gray.
