USS New York fabricated with steel from destroyed towers, enters NY Harbor
To the Editor,
The photo of the USS New York pausing at the World Trade Center painfully reveals a visible slice of an empty lot idly waiting. A more fitting “homecoming” use for the 7.5 tons of steel could have been a memorial at Ground Zero instead of material for a Naval ship. While the USS New York might be an honor to board for the harbor pilot Neil Keaton, imagine if instead he stood where his brother perished to inaugurate a memorial in a renewed neighborhood rebuilt from the ashes and same melted steel as the USS New York.
FYI NY Times didn't publish my comments, not surprised really....
