  • Part of Husdon River Park, Pier 54 is final destination of Titanic, which never reached to it. At present only archway is identifiable piece of the pier.  more »
  • The old port area of Chelsea Piers in New York was once the city's busiest. Many of the piers are still used for various purposes, but Pier 54 has a decay, perhaps due to its dark history. Pier 54 operated by Steamboats from "Cunard Line" and "White Star Line". One can still imagine the text "CUNARD WHITE STAR" on the rusted iron construction. 1915 was the Pier 54 departure dock for "RMS Lusitania", which was torpedoed and sunk by Germany off the coast of Ireland. The event is considered to be a key reason why America entered the First World War. Three years earlier became Pier 59 selected as arrival pier for Cunard's glorious creation "RMS Titanic"-but, as we know, so it never came out ... On the other hand, arrived "RMS Carpathia" with the survivors of the disaster and they added on this site.

  • Interesting how many people here are saying Titanic was originally going to arrive at Pier 54 and that Olympic docked at 54 as well. Both are wrong, both of those are attributes to Pier 59. Olympic didn’t dock at 54, as it was Cunard’s dock.
  • Th Carpathia dropped off first and second class passengers here, after first dropping off the life boats belonging to the White Star Line at pier 59
