    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_United_States "SS United States is a retired ocean liner built in 1950–51 for the United States Lines at a cost of US$79.4 million. The ship is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the United States and the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction, retaining the Blue Riband for the highest average speed since her maiden voyage in 1952. She was designed by American naval architect William Francis Gibbs and could be converted into a troopship if required by the Navy in time of war. United States maintained an uninterrupted schedule of transatlantic passenger service until 1969 and was never used as a troopship." Photos of the ship during construction, launch, and maiden voyage can be seen at www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2015/10/06/business/ss-united-s... The final photograph appears to show the same sort of pier structure as at the right of this photo by Rizzuto. northriversailny.wordpress.com/2011/02/12/new-york-waterw... includes a picture of the SS United States coming in to Pier 86 on the Hudson River in 1952. This page indicates that Pier 86 was used by the United States Lines. It seems likely that this picture shows the SS United States at Pier 86, which was at the end of W 46th Street.
