Memorial Day in NYC: Make It Memorable with FCS

Cadillac Escalade

Looking for a quick New York City getaway or staycation? Memorial Day weekend is a great time to visit a part of the city you’ve always wanted to see — or haven’t been to in a while.

With a long weekend and plenty of big-city events, you can expect crowds wherever you go. How can you make the most of your weekend — even when the streets are busy with parades and people are heading to parks for picnics? Hire a car service, but not just any car service. Enjoy a luxury ride with FCS.

So much to do, so little time

When you hire a black-car service for your holiday weekend, your chauffeur will get you to your destinations on time and in style. Thinking about taking part in some of the events during Fleet Week, a week-long celebration honoring members of the United States Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps? It kicks off with an awe-inspiring flotilla of aircraft carriers, giant warships and historic vessels down the Hudson River. Reserve a black car to drop you off at any of the many parks along the river to view these majestic ships and pick you up when you’re ready to move on to your next event.

Another inspiring military event during NYC’s Memorial Day weekend is the U.S. Navy Aviation Demonstration, where the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps show off their fighter planes, jets, and helicopters in aerial and ground demonstrations around the city. You can avoid the parking hassles by using a black-car service to take you to as many of these locations as you like.

Enjoy listening to patriotic music? You could take in the annual Memorial Day concert at Green-Wood Cemetery, and later, take a trolley tour with a Green-Wood historian. Or you can witness a beautiful tribute at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. Perhaps you prefer an afternoon at Yankee Stadium or an evening at The Gardens. Are you an art aficionado? The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit has lots of unique pieces to see or purchase, at far less than gallery prices.

Say you even want to take a break from the city this Memorial Day—no problem! FCS will be happy to take you to the Hamptons, Montauk, Jersey Shore, Upstate New York or anywhere nearby with some peace, quiet and sun.

Whatever your Memorial Day plans include, a black-car service can make the difference between a relaxing, low-stress holiday and one filled with battling crowds on subways, competing for taxis, or worrying about finding parking. With FCS, you get a safe ride in a clean, luxury vehicle. Not to mention, our professional chauffeurs will get you where you want to be on time, and they can also point out interesting sights or bits of history along the way.
