To: HANG THE EXPENSE
Her crows nest is in Annapolis at the Naval academy.

Actually, the USNA has the Enterprise's bell. The crows nest (more correctly, the signal bridge) was supposed to be saved and mounted on the football stadium. This never happened, pictures of the ship at the time of scrapping (being towed away from Brooklyn to Kearny) show the bridge having been removed and lain on the flightdeck. But unlike other artifacts (the anchor that's a the Washington DC Navy Yard and her nameplate which is up in New Jersey) the bridge was unfortunately not saved.

I thought I remember seeing the bridge there.Damned old age and wishful thinking.I do remember seeing the photo of the bridge lying on the deck.Thanks for clearing up that misconception on my part.
