Fleet Week Sails Into NYC









From NY1:
Fleet Week kicked off Wednesday morning with a “Parade of Ships” on the Hudson, which included one massive craft built from World Trade Center steel. The USS New York, a ship constructed with nearly eight tons of steel from Ground Zero, led the procession at the launch of New York’s 24th annual Fleet Week. 
It is the boat’s first official trip to the city since being commissioned here in 2009.
“The fact that it has the steel from the Trade Center, that it was built to honor the memory of those who were lost on that day, it's incredibly moving to me,” said Captain Brenda Berkman of the FDNY. 
As the USS New York approached Lower Manhattan, its crew stood at attention to pay their respects to those killed in the terror attacks on September 11th.
