Deal Struck to Save SS United States

Preservationists said yesterday they have an agreement with a New York redevelopment partner.

They plan to divulge more information at a news conference in Manhattan next week.

The one time luxury ocean liner still holds the record for the fastest trans-Atlantic crossing.
