The ship made from Twin Towers wreckage

The ship made from Twin Towers wreckage
Fire boats escort the future USS New York as she passes lower Manhattan next to where the World Trade Center towers once stood in New York City. The ship, which is built with 7.5 tons of steel from the World Trade Centre in her bow, is an amphibious transport dock ship and will be commissioned during a ceremony on November 7. As the ship entered New York Harbour where dozens of firefighters, family members of September 11 victims and onlookers gathered to watch, a detail aboard the 684-foot vessel fired a 21-gun salute.
