U.S.S. New York
SHE'S HERE! AFTER FIRING A 21-GUN SALUTE, USS NEW YORK HEADED UP THE HUDSON RIVER TO TURN AROUND AND TIE UP AT PIER 88.
This morning the yet-to-be commissioned warship came to a halt opposite the former World Trade Center site and saluted the citizens of New York City and State. On Saturday she will be formally inducted into the United States Navy fleet.
Members of the Fire Department of New York, the New York Police Department, the NY/NJ Port Authority Police, members of 9/11 victims' families and military service veterans gathered on both sides of the Hudson and returned the salute.
YES, you are invited to go aboard the ship.
