The future USS NEW YORK (LPD 21), built with 7.5 tons of steel from the World Trade Center in her bow, will be commissioned in a private New York City ceremony on November 7 directly next to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
 
But the ship will actually arrive on November 2, when the public can welcome her as she renders honors at the World Trade Center site, and by visiting the ship before she leaves on November 12, 2009.
 
At approximately 8:00 a.m., on November 2, the future USS NEW YORK will come to a standstill across from the World Trade Center site, dip her flag, and deliver a 21-gun salute. Members of the Fire Department of New York, the New York Police Department, Port Authority Police, members of the families of 9/11 victims and veteran's will gather on the shore at the North Cove in the World Financial Center to return the salute. Members of the general public are encouraged to attend.
 
There will also be several opportunities for the general public to tour the ship when she is docked at Pier 88 at 12th Avenue and West 48th Street, directly next to the Intrepid.
 
The USS NEW YORK public visitation schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, November 4 - 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Thursday, November 5 - 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 8 - 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Monday, November 9 - 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday, November 10 - 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday, November 11 - 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
 
Members of the general public wishing to tour the ship should:
-- arrive early as lines may be long, especially on Sunday, Nov. 8.
-- enter at West 46th Street and 12th Avenue (by the Intrepid). 
-- bring a photo ID.
-- wear comfortable shoes.
 
No large packages or backpacks will be permitted.
