Fleet Week’s Parade of Ships on the Hudson

This week is Fleet Week in New York City, and my colleague Alex Sedunov captured hundreds of photos of the march of military vessels up the Hudson yesterday. The weather was crisp, warm and clear, making for a wonderful welcome and a truly great set of shots.

This first shot is of the USS New York, which was built incorporating steel that was salvaged from the World Trade Center, after it was destroyed in the September 11 attacks.  It is docked at Staten Island.

Here’s the USS Iwo Jima which is docked by Manhattan:


And there were a lot of aerial sights to see also, with military helicopters and show planes:

And if you don’t mind some dizzying moments when the camera was moved for different views, here is a complete time-lapse of the afternoon’s ships, also from Alex Sedunov:
