Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Shamira Purifoy, Navy Public Affairs Support Element East reports from somewhere in the Atlantic about the crew of the USS New York marking the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 aboard the ship that bears 7 tons of World Trade Center steel in her bow.

The USS New York, an amphibious transport dock ship, together with amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7) and the guided-missile cruiser USS San Jacinto (CG 56), are headed to the Florida Keys to assist with disaster relief after Hurricane Irma.

Parishioners make a plea, offer a plan to save their Battery Park City church, St. Joseph’s Chapel

Parishioners from the endangered St. Joseph’s Chapel in Battery Park City have announced a plan to preserve their parish — they’re asking the Battery Park City Authority to take over the chapel and turn it into an interfaith community center and memorial to those killed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, reports Carl Glassman in the Tribeca Trib.

The chapel’s rent more than tripled in 2013, to just under $300,000 annually, leaving tiny St. Joseph’s unable to pay.

Recently, St. Joseph’s parishioners were heartened by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s decision to give St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox National Shrine a 198-year, dollar-a-year lease. They hope a similar arrangement might be possible to save St. Joseph’s.
