"I christen thee New York," and a hundred thousand cheers of pride rent the air as she glided o'er the way. When fully equipped the Battleship New York will be a representation of more than six millions of dollars. In dimensions this great engine of war will measure five hundred and seventy-three feet over all, and her beam will be ninety-five feet two and five-eighth inches, with a net tonnage of twenty-seven thousand. She will draw twenty-eight feet six inches of water and move at a speed of twenty-one knots. An aerial view taken from the crane shows the vessel as it glides from the dry dock. The President and other notable officials were photographed well up to the camera, not overlooking the feminine charm of flower girl and sponsor.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
