Sailors and Shots: Fleet Week in NYC

I went to a bar in St. Mark’s (Lower East Village) to celebrate a birthday and a farewell for two dear friends, and a bunch of sailors walked in. Yesterday was the first day of Fleet Week in New York City. I happened to have my camera with me, so I asked the sailors if I could hang out with them and take some pictures.

Some sailors were from Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia. Many had never been to New York before. They talked about their jobs. They drank. We all drank. They were a lot of fun.
