Mass. ship deployed to New York to aid in Hurricane relief

The Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s training ship, the T. S. Kennedy, is being sent to New York City to serve as a “no-frills hotel” for first responders helping the region recover from Hurricane Sandy.

The 540-foot Kennedy, originally built in 1967, was retrofitted to serve as a floating classroom in 2009, and can accommodate up to 710 people.
