The SS United States, Pier 82, South Philly.

There is so much information on the Internets about this ship’s history (in addition to books, great pictures and a documentary) I feel like any attempt I make write about it will be pretty lame.

I will write this — If you’ve ever stood in the Ikea parking lot and thought “they should do something with that eyesore,” head over to and make a donation! The organization that now owns the ship is raising money to turn it into a museum.
