Never Let Go - Titanic 100th Anniversary Events

Ticket from Titanic Exhibition
On April 15th, 1912 the R.M.S. Titanic sank below the Atlantic and we have never able to let go of its tragedy and history since. For 100th anniversary there are several events going around the world to remember and celebrate the passengers who died and survived.

If you stop by the South Street Seaport, one of the first things you'll see is a lighthouse. That lighthouse serves as a memorial for all the people brought to port.  Note: The South Street Seaport location was not it's original spot and moved for historical preservation.

Here are a few of the events going on in NYC in honor of the centennial:
  • Join the South Street Seaport for their exhibition about the history and fascination with the ship's sinking.
  • Queens College will be showcasing documents collected from people who wrote about the days following the sinking.
  • Seamen Church Institute examines the effort from local New Yorks did to help the survivors.
  • Watch Julian Fellows (Gosford Park, Downton Abbey) Titanic miniseries April 14 and 15. Bonus: seeing the newest Doctor Who companion in action. 
  • Gemini & Scorpio are holding a Drowned Ball at the Zanger Hall
  • Titanic in 3D is now playing in select theaters.
