On Memorial Day 2014 in May, Americans honor the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for freedom. This national holiday was born after the Civil War in remembrance of fallen servicemen and women. While the origins of Memorial Day are somber, the holiday is also a celebration of liberty, helping to kick off the summer for people all over New York City, with Memorial Weekend ceremonies, parades, and patriotic events.

At the Annual Memorial Day Parade, New Yorkers line up along the parade route at Bay Ridge before a 21-gun salute and wreath ceremony in John Paul Jones Park. This Memorial Day parade in NYC is the oldest in the country and features bands, floats, active duty military personnel, and veterans from conflicts ranging from World War II to Iraq.

Families and patriots bring flowers, pictures, and flags to honor the memory of soldiers at both the American Veterans Memorial Pier and the Green-Wood Cemetery. And at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, visitors can see restored jets and a World War II helicopter up close.

From the oldest Memorial Day parade in the U.S. and special exhibits, to solemn tributes to fallen soldiers, Memorial Day 2014 in New York City offers plenty of ways to remember the lives of Americans lost in service.
