SS United States Exhibition Opens in Brooklyn This Week

The Conservancy's New York Chapter and the City Reliquary would like to invite you to a very special event!

Welcome to "The United States: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow." This exhibition, to be held in the front room of Brooklyn's City Reliquary, celebrates the extraordinary career of the luxury liner known as “America’s Flagship” and her relationship with the City of New York.

Don't miss the opening event on Saturday, July 1 at 7:00 PM to commemorate the 65th Anniversary of SS United States' record-breaking Maiden Voyage! There will be an 8:00 PM screening in the Reliquary garden of the film Colossus On The River (1965; Runtime: 15 min.). Beverages will available by suggested donation, with beer courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and a specialty cocktail courtesy of Montauk Rum produced by Hampton Rum Company. 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.

While the exhibition runs until August 20, we hope to see you this weekend in New York!
