After 18 years of rusting away at Pier 82 in South Philadelphia, the iconic SS United States could be brought back to life – but in New York, officials confirmed Friday.

“Currently, the negotiations that are most promising would place the ship in New York,” Susan Gibbs, executive chair of the SS United States Conservancy and the granddaughter of the ship’s designer, Philadelphia native William Francis Gibbs, said in an e-mail. “We do expect that the ship will survive, but only if we continue to galvanize further support and build on the powerful momentum now underway.”
