New York

New York was Titanic's destination, but only the recovered lifeboats that were towed by the Carpathian made it to the White Star pier.

The arrival of the Carpathia was a press frenzy. Up till her arrival, the only news came from wireless reports that were wildly inaccurate. From the start, scavengers plundered the empty lifeboats as souvenirs.

Today the site of the White Star dock is the Chelsea Piers. No sign of the White Star Line remains, but here's a list of the memorials you can check out.
