USS New York and its Steel

This is a piece of good news from today’s Boston Globe :
"Steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center will
be used to build the Navy’s USS New York, a warship named in honor of those who
perished in New York on Sept. 11, 2001."

Also note:
"The USS New York will be the fifth of 12 amphibious assault ships in the San
Antonio class, which the Navy calls one of its most technologically innovative. The
684-foot vessel will carry a Navy crew of 402 and up to 800 Marines.

The $800 million vessel should be ready for active duty in 2007.

If the trade center scrap meets specifications, it will be melted down and used to
configure the edge of the bow that cuts through the water, said Northrop Grumman
spokesman Jim McIngdale."
