Here at 60 Bay Street, we are privileged to be able to view Fleet Week’s Parade of Sail traveling beneath the Verrazano Bridge towards the Statue of Liberty. This year’s celebration marks the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the penning of the Star-Spangled Banner which was first a poem by Francis Scott Key written while he watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy. As we honor our U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, we sit here high atop our office watching glorious sailing vessels pass our windows, and with pride, our grand military ships.
