November 2, 2009. The USS New York, an amphibious assault ship built with steel from the World Trade Center, was to herald its arrival at the site of the 2001 terrorist attack with a 21-gun salute as she paused across from the WTC and then headed up river to Pier 88. Not so sure we heard 21…maybe only 3….but it was still a meaningful and impressive morning.
