The SS United States, former ship of state for the US, sits at her berth in Philadelphia as she awaits rescue. The passenger vessel broke the record for crossing the Atlantic Ocean. She is still the holder of the Blue Riband record, and its owners are seeking developers to turn the ship into a floating hotel with restaurants. The goal is to dock her on the west side of Manhattan. 3-7-12. PHOTO BY PIM VAN HEMMEN. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
