You're among a growing legion of friends of the SS UNITED STATES.
My name is Mike. I
believe in the future of the UNITED STATES,
and that's why I created this web site.
The mission here at SS-UNITED-STATES.COM is to build awareness of this ship - a giant ocean liner that many simply call the Big U.
In her short 17 years, the U transported over one million passengers. This steam ship sailed millions of miles and she never failed. Her
mission: to connect continents and bring people together. Even today, more than 35 years after active duty, the SS UNITED STATES continues to bring people together. Just park yourself on South Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia and watch the people that come, get out of their cars and walk up to the fence to get closer to the SS UNITED STATES.
Young and old - the Big U is making
new friends. But what about her future?
is certain... The UNITED STATES
has a chance at being saved. I use
the word 'chance' because there are
many forces that come into play - both
for and against the future of the Big
U. Fortunately, you are one of the
forces that can help.
can you do? You can use
the most powerful tool you'll ever
possess - your influence. Just speak
up for the SS UNITED STATES.
Invite others to learn more about this monumental liner. Spread the word. Encourage others to dream a little. Be positive. Change the future.

Where is the SS UNITED STATES today?
You can find the Big U in Philadelphia on the
Delaware River - between Philly and Camden, New Jersey

MapQuest to get a visual fix on the location of the
UNITED STATES' pier.

The SS UNITED STATES represents
the effort, talent, intelligence and daring
of humans. From her naval architects and the yard
workers who built her - to the engineers and deck
crew that operated her - and of course the million
plus that were passengers aboard - the ship is a
story about great human
Then as now, the ship seems to reflect the potential
in us all.
This is why the SS UNITED
STATES remains my ship of dreams. And why I am
looking forward to brighter colors.
Thanks for visiting. Tell your friends
about the UNITED STATES.
