Just clicked on the Navy pre-June 1965 link:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/35033278@N ... 352040586/

There are seemingly hundreds of amazing color photos from around 1960 around Boston and NY, with many wartime and 50s ships, including battleships, cruisers, carriers and escort carriers, loads of destroyers, auxilliarys and coast guard ships, many photos of ships in conversion or extended maintenance, and great atmospheric shots of the dockayards. An amazing reference and resource.

Additional information on US Navy bases in WWII, added for future reference.
