On March 1, 2008, LPD 21 was christened with the name USS NEW YORK at ceremonies in Northrop Grumman's Avondale shipyard.
Hundreds of Northrop Grumman employees, deeply touched by what the ship represents, stayed in New Orleans to complete her construction despite the destruction left behind by Hurricane Katrina.
