USS New York- Built From The Steel of the World Trade Center

Her hull was built partly with 7.5 tons of steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center. And yesterday in a ceremony that featured Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James T. Conway the USS New York was commissioned in New York Harbor before an estimated crowd of 6,000.

WCBS TV's Rob Morrison gives a brief tour of the Navy's newest transport.
