The Four Mast ship is " The Moshulu"

The Moshulu was seen in the movies Rocky (shown during one of Rocky's workout sessions along the waterfront) and The Godfather Part II (bringing the young Vito Corleone to America in 1901, two years before it was built),

The Cruiser is the USS Olympia (C-6/CA-15/CL-15/IX-40) This vessel became famous as the flagship of Commodore George Dewey at the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War in 1898.
