It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placename w:st="on">World</st1:placename> <st1:placename w:st="on">Trade</st1:placename> <st1:placetype w:st="on">Center</st1:placetype></st1:place></span></font></span>

Katrina disrupted construction when it pounded the <st1:placetype w:st="on">Gulf</st1:placetype> <st1:placetype w:st="on">Coast</st1:placetype> last summer but the 684 foot vessel escaped serious damage, and workers were back at the yard near <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">New Orleans</st1:city></st1:place> two weeks after the storm.</span></font></span>

"He came in through the back door and knocked our towers down.The <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:state w:st="on">New York</st1:state></st1:place> is is coming right through the front door and we want them to know that."</span></font></span>
