A Big Fleet Week Welcome to our Sailors and Those Who Admire Them
FleetWeek New York is an eagerly awaited annual NYC tradition. Thousands of sailors, marines and Coast Guardsmen visit NYC on dozens of navy and Coast Guard vessels and tall ships.
For many of these sailors, the week is an opportunity to show off their ships and work to adoring throngs. It’s also an opportunity to cut loose in NYC, a sailor tradition that goes back at least as far as when Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly spent 24 hours in NYC in “On The Town.”
Many of the fabulous ships that visitors flock to are parked at the Intrepid Pier and Piers 90 and 92 on Manhattan’s West Side, in the high 40s or low 50s on 12th Avenue.
For visitors to these ships, it can be challenging to find a good meal or drink after a day of visiting the ships, as the area is a restaurant wasteland.
But there is some good news – Brickyard Gastropub, one of the best restaurants in midtown NYC, is just a 7-10 minute walk from each of these Piers. We have an outstanding menu for adults, a kids’ menu, the best craft beer in NYC, a full bar, and a great atmosphere in which everyone always has a good time. But don’t just take our word for it; read the stellar reviews of Brickyard Gastropub on Open Table.
So whether you’re a group of sailors enjoying your “On the Town” moment or a group of sailor admirers hungry, thirsty and eager to find a comfortable chair, visit Brickyard Gastropub during Fleet Week!
