Opening Event Saturday, July 1 at 7:00 PM
The City Reliquary proudly presents, in partnership with the New York Chapter of the SS United States Conservancy, “The United States: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.” This exhibition celebrates the extraordinary career of the luxury liner known as “America’s Flagship” and her relationship with the City of New York. The show will run from June 29th to August 20th, 2017.
The opening event at The City Reliquary on Saturday, July 1 at 7:00 PM will commemorate the 65th Anniversary of SS United States’ famous record-breaking Maiden Voyage. There will be an 8 PM screening of the film Colossus On The River (1965; Runtime: 15 min.). Beverages available by suggested donation, with beer courtesy of The Brooklyn Brewery and a specialty cocktail courtesy of Montauk Rum.
This show will trace the life of the ship, from young speed queen and popular cover girl to aging star of yesteryear and nearly forgotten “has-been,” and finally—with your help–to one of the great comeback stories in U.S. history.
