This ship is called the USS New York. The ship was built with steel from the towers of the World Trade Center.
Many people celebrated on November 7, 2009 as the ship was commissioned into service for the United States Navy.
The sailors on the USS New York will live and work on the ship. The ship will travel around the world.
