Hoboken during Fleet Week

How is Hoboken during Fleet Week? I'm planning to go there this weekend but if parking is going to be an extra hassle then I may change my mind.

Thanks. I know Hoboken doesn't have a Fleet Week. It's across the Hudson in Manhattan. I was simply wondering if Hoboken gets any busier during this week.

You're not going to see a lot of service people walking around Hoboken. I live there and I saw maybe a dozen during the week in uniform.

Now I'm pretty sure, and correct me if I'm wrong but Navy personnel are not allowed to drink in uniform, so even if the sailors on liberty were in Hoboken you wouldn't notice them anyway.

But there are no ceremonies in Hoboken for Fleet Week. Hoboken however is a great place to come see the parade of ships the morning they come in.

Thanks for the info. I was just trying to gauge whether or not parking was going to be more of a pain during that weekend. Looking for parking on Saturday nights and Sunday brunches has never been fun. The reason I didn't head into the city was to avoid the extra congestion from Fleet Week. I wound up heading there for brunch on Memorial Day and enjoyed a stroll along the Hudson by Pier C Park with my family.

I would consider Fleet Week to be a minor attraction relative to Broadway or the Rock Center Christmas tree. Parking shouldn't be a bigger problem than normal.
