Navy Ship Made of 9-11 Steel Sails Into New York

Not too remarkable for a Navy ship. But this one is different. It was made with steel from the twin towers that were attacked on 9-11. 7.5 tons of steel to be exact. It must have been quite an emotional experience to be a sailor on this ship coming into New York harbor.
The USS New York will be berthed near the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum for a while, until it's commissioning ceremony on November 7, 2009.
