Between its founding in 1899 and its closing in 1967, The New York Shipbuilding Corporation built 656 vessels for the United States Navy, the American Merchant Marine, the Coast Guard, and assorted other concerns. Their histories--heroic, tragic, or merely pedestrian--are part of its history. These ships were the yard's contribution to the defense of the nation in a century of war and the vitality of the nation in a century of economic growth. The fleet includes cruisers and battleships, aircraft carriers and submarines, tankers and colliers, cargo steamers and ferryboats, and more. At its peak during World War II, NYSB was the largest and most productive shipyard in the world.
