Navy ship made with WTC steel returns to NYC

A piece of the World Trade Center returned to New York City Monday as the USS New York docked in Manhattan.

The new Navy vessel is made from 7.5 tons of steel taken from the Twin Towers.

Families of Sept. 11 victims and first responders greeted the ship as it arrived near the Ground Zero site with a 21-gun salute.
