The HMCS Athabaskan, which is a Tribal Class destroyer, was one of the Royal Canadian Naval ships to visit New York City for Fleet Week 2009.  These photos were taken at the Stapleton Naval Piers, which are on Staten Island in NYC.   The ship was not open for tours the day I was there, so I took the photos from pier-side and from the HMCS Fredricton which was moored outboard of the Athabaskan.   She is quite an impressive ship and I hope these photos will be helpful for anyone who will build the forthcoming Resin Shipyard kit of the HMCS Iroquois, which is a sister ship.
