Fleet Week on Memorial day - what to expect and getting around the city

Jump to last reply

We have tickets to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island for Memorial Day. I figured this would also be a good day to ride the Staten Island Ferry since we will be in this area. Then I saw that is was Fleet Week and a day of many parades in the area. They also have a ship visitation open to the public this day at the Staten Island pier. How crowded does it become in this area and will it be next to impossible to try and ride the Staten Island ferry on Memorial Day? Should we allow extra time to get to the Statue of Liberty ferry (we have 10:00 tickets)?
Thanks.
