USS NEW YORK (LPD 21) Christening

Snopes it if you want, but the ship with WTC steel in her bow was Christened today. Solid web page on her here, along with some nice video. Too bad it doesn't also have the figurehead from the other USS NEW YORK too! Pick below is from her launching in DEC07.

As an interesting side-bar; a previous USS NEW YORK (AKA USS ROCHESTER) at the bottom of Subic Bay between Alavar Pier and the northern end of the runway here.

Hat tip Roger.
