The pavilion will also feature artifacts from the ship, such as luggage tags, lapel pins, old travel magazines and daily programs.
It’s a tribute to a ship that has brought many of us friends, fans, enthusiasts, people whom worked on the ship and sailed on her together as a community.
The 2nd series to be highlighted is the “Uniting the Trinity.” series which comprises of passenger ships passing the rebuilt One World Trade Center.
For over a decade there was a great void in lower Manhattan where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood in after the 9/11 terror attacks. Over the years we eventually saw the rise of the new One WTC, when finally completed in 2013 it became a shining symbol of rebirth.
The work of Byron Huart documents the historic occasion of the great ships triumphantly passing the new WTC.

Hoboken, NJ has vast maritime history, though the piers where the great liners of
Holland America Line and many other shipping lines of yesteryear are long gone, the modern cruise liners of today have become a fixture in the community as they routinely sail in and out of Manhattan passing the iconic skyline.
