The 684-foot, $1.2-billion warship USS New York is actually made of New York. At least, 7.5 tonnes of salvaged steel from the Twin Towers.  The bow was made from that steel , and it really is amazing. The USS New York is a San Antonio-class amphibious assault vessel, which can carry 800 marines with their helicopters.  If you are in New York, you can see it today near Zone Zero, on the south tip of Manhattan. Its very cool.
