USS New York (ACR-2) was a United States Navy armored cruiser of the 1890s. Commissioned in 1893, she was later renamed Saratoga and then Rochester and was decommissioned in 1933. She served in the Spanish-American war, bombarding the defenses at Matanzas and El Morro Castle and serving in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba. She also served in WWI as the Saratoga and Rochester, as a training ship, convoy escort, and troop transport (after the Armistice).
Some versions of this model include the fore and aft masts, though they may be attached to 'sprue' underneath the model to protect them during shipping.
