Could this be the next big thing in Philadelphia?: "Norwegian Cruise Line has been trying to find something to do with the rusting remains of the SS United States, an ocean liner bigger than the Titanic that was once the fastest in the world.
We think Roman Abramovich should buy it, on account of his passion for big boats. Right now, Roman's busy putting the finishing touches on his new 540-foot yacht Eclipse (rumored to be complete with missile defense system), which means he'll soon be in the market for something bigger. The 990-foot United States seems perfect.
But Roman hasn't expressed interest yet. So a group calling itself the SS United States Conservancy is suggesting that the boat be towed from Philadelphia to New York and made into a floating hotel. Patrick McGeehan has the details."
