The Fifth USS New York (ACR-2) was laid down in 1890, launched in 1891 and commissioned in 1893. Constructed in Philadelphia. She was the second armored cruiser to be built for the US Navy. With six 8-inch guns, she was the most heavily armed cruiser in the US Navy when commissioned. In 1911, she was renamed USS Saratoga. This freed up the name “New York”, which would then be given to a battleship. 

This painting is an original copy for a supplement press release  for the Philadelphia Press in 1898. Featuring Black and gold trim framing with white matting. The frame measures 23" x19"
