In two days the state-of-the-art amphibious landing craft USS New York will be commissioned at Pier 88 on Manhattan's west side -- 12th Ave. at W. 48th St.
From flight deck to crew quarters, the L(anding) P(latform) D(ock)s are the most advanced sea-faring machines in terms of design and technology, effectively replacing four older classes of amphibious landing craft.
This modern-day behemoth is 111 feet longer than her battleship namesake. She will carry sea-based platforms, including:
* The V-22 tilt-rotor Osprey aircraft
* Three types of helicopters
* 14 expeditionary fighting vehicles (EFVs) and/or several air-cushioned landing craft (LCACs) for across-the-beach deployments of U.S. Marine Corps and Special Forces personnel.
