Breaking News

The USS New York Battleship took a tour around New York City this morning and went under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, paused at the World Trade Center site, then up and back the Upper West Side before docking in Midtown Manhattan. The USS New York is an Landing Platform Deck (LPD 21) and is a "mobility triad uniquely adaptable to a variety of modern day combat situations," according to the USS New website.

The USS New York completed a five-day voyage from Norfolk, Virginia for the official commissioning in New York City. The USS New York Battleship was created with 7.5 tons of steel from the twin towers and was given that name after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
