I seem to remember on the Parthia we were at Pier 92 and the Bermuda boats were further up the river.

Pier 92 for the Queen Mary in 64 & 67, also the Franconia in 67 if the Queens weren't in.

PS

Who actually owned the piers, was it the shipping companies, or the NY Port Authority, who leased them to the companies?

Tom,
The regular bartender in the Market Diner in my time in NY 1964/65 was a young lad from Belfast named Jimmy. He was very generous with the freebies, ie pretzels, nuts and big bowls of freshly fried chips.
ChasH, the bloodbanks were in 42nd Street, two right next to each other. You could stagger from one to the other, and then head over the road to an Irish bar and replenish your blood supply with pints of Guinness!

Pat

If I remember correctly Cunard had an office on Pier 92, we used to have our mail sent there directly when on the Ivernia. I recall Jimmy, Andy and a Puerto Rican guy can't put a name to him. I think Andy was the head barman, used to see one of the Zefflin brothers who were the owners visit a few times in the daytime. Also seen Marjorie Proops in the diner she looked old, that was in 64 or 65, another time a Rolls Royce parked up outside and the driver came in.
He had a green blazer with brass buttons plus a crest /coat of arms on the breast pocket. He would not disclose who he was but as he was leaving he said he was going to collect the Duke of Windsor from a hotel uptown. It had a variety of customers over the years, when the old Queens were in dock I used to give the Diner a wide berth.

Anyone remember "Red Hopper" the pier gang boss of Pier 92? A character straight out of "On the Waterfront"

Pier Numbers for Cunard

I can remember "Market Diner" across the road from the pier exit. I was there 1969/1970 in fact was moored there in QE2 maiden arrival.

I recall Pier 90 was for the largest liners, Pier 91 (on upriver side of 90 was for smaller passenger ship and us lowly cargo ship types were on pier 92.

After that we were banished to Newark with ACL. A new age had dawned.

Occasionally during dock strikes we would all go over and discharge/backload the liners as we were insde the picket lines.
