Description: Staten Island will become the Navy's next homeport. This week, the US Navy will be parading its fleet in York Harbor. The goal of this week-long "celebration" is to familiarize New Yorkers with the ships and sailors. But, with the tragedy aboard, USS Iowa, questions are once again being raised about the propriety of having ships loaded with nuclear weapons in such close proximity to an urban area. Robert Lipsyte's guests will be Congressman Ted Weiss and John Lehman, former Secretary of the Navy. Original Broadcast Date: 5-2-89
