USS New York (LPD-21) USS New York (LPD-21) is a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, and the fifth ship of the United States Navy named after the state of New York. A symbolic amount of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center after it was destroyed in the September 11 attacks was used in her construction. Members of the New York City Police Department and the New York City Fire Department, and family members of victims of the September 11 attacks were on hand for the Christening 01 March 2008.

On 2 November 2009 the ship passed the World Trade Center site for the first time and gave the site a 21-gun salute. The commissioning ceremony for New York took place on 7 November 2009, in New York City. Approximately one in seven of the plank owners are from New York state, a larger number than usual.
