U.S. sailors have once again taken Manhattan, arriving on a flotilla of 14 ships that launched a Fleet Week packed with seven days of tri-state area events, exhibitions and spectacles.

The USS Arlington led the way for the 2,300 sailors on Wednesday, as crew members in their whites stood shoulder to shoulder before the 25,000-ton warship – named for the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon -- docked at Manhattan’s Pier 90.

For more than 35 years, on and off, residents have enjoyed the pageantry, as well as the chance to mingle – and take selfies, of course -- with the United States’ fighting forces on the seas: the Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps (The event was suspended in 2013 because of a government shutdown).

As usual, the ships are docked throughout the city, with some available for free tours at Pier 90, Pier 86, the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, Homeport Pier (Staten Island) and the Intrepid.

Navy Dive Tank and Marine Martial Arts demonstrations were also being held in Times Square.

Navy Band concerts were scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday under the arch in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park, and on 8 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. Sunday in Times Square.

Also on Friday: The U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue team will conduct a noontime demonstration at the Staten Island Pier.

Sunday brings a Liberty State Park event in Jersey City, with displays and demonstrations, from noon to 5 p.m. Navy and Marine Corps bands will perform.
