NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The USS Slater, the last World War II destroyer escort that is still afloat, made its way up the Hudson River on Monday.

Earlier this spring the ship had work done to the steel and a new coat of paint was added. 

The USS Slater has a unique zig zag paint pattern that was used during the war to throw off the enemy.

The ship left Staten Island on Monday morning and was expected to pass West Point Monday afternoon before arriving at its home pier in Albany.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
