Pier 54, New York, NY

It’s not “Studio” 54, but this pier has an attachment to one of the biggest disasters in sailing history. Pier 54 was supposed to be the dock where the Titanic reached New York City, which got the Carpathia instead of the massive ship that sank after hitting an iceberg.

In its heyday of Atlantic crossings, one could see magnificent ships from famous companies such as Cunard, White Star, and French Line. While not an entire museum, the old gate at the pier is still available to see today, and it’s a look back at some history that never was. So if you’re in the area, check it out!
