the SS 'New York', a ship that had a close encounter with the 'Titanic'


As Titanic left Southampton 10 April 1912, the suction and wave action of her propellers and huge bulk tore New York loose from her mooring in tandem with Oceanic at Berth 38.  The tug Vulcan quickly tied up to New York and along with the Hercules, kept her in check until Titanic had passed.
