SS United States


It’s not a building, strictly speaking, but the SS United States is an incredible relic.  It is amazing that it has ended up in Philadelphia and unexpectedly looms above Delaware Avenue, out of scale with it surroundings. It has extra meaning for me because I built a model of it when I was a kid (in Florida) and now I can see it from my desk.

There are some very good photos by Matthew Christopher Murray at
