The USS New York
Campaign '09 one day to go: Bill Thompson, Margaret Chin and other key Democrats on tomorrow's ballot will hold a 4:30pm rally in Chatham Square today. Mayor Bloomberg paid a visit to the crew of the USS New York yesterday, the Navy's brand new ship made from 7 tons of World Trade Center steel. According to the Times, "he told one reservist from the Lower East Side that his daughter also lives there. He signed some hats and posed for pictures."
