          Dear Ms. Sies,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships, 1801 - 1940 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) that include the deck logs of the USS New York (ACR-2) for March 1901 through July 1901. For more information about these logs, please contact the National Archives in Washington DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

          In addition, we searched the website of the Naval History and Heritage Command and located an article about New York IV (Armored Cruiser) as well as other resources..
