Would love to see that ship brought back. I know it will never see service again, but what an Icon of the old liners.

Spent one night on the Queen Mary in Long Beach before our Panama Canal transit on the Pride. What an experience.

I would love to see her brought 'home' to New York. Wouldn't it be nice to see her docked near the Intrepid museum? She could have multi uses as a hotel, ocean liner museum, conference center to supplement the nearby Javits Convention Center.
New York has the biggest market to give her a chance at financial success. If Long Beach (RMS Queen Mary), and Rotterdam (SS Rotterdam) can make a go of it, why not New York?
