S.S. City of New York - 1888 - Ship's History and Information
THE "CITY OF NEW YORK."
This fine steamship left New York, August 22d, bound East, and arrived off Brow Head on the 28th, at 8.30 P. M., making the run in 6 days, 3 hours and 53 minutes. The fastest time is that made by the City of Paris, in 5 days and 23 hours; but the achievement is well worthy of record, and establishes the fact that the City of New York has a clean pair of heels. The time of her last westward trip was 6 days, 4 hours and 17 minutes, which beat her own westward record of 6 days, 14 hours and 20 minutes.

THROUGHOUT the leading hotels, railway stations and public resorts of England and Scotland have been distributed and hung. in conspicuous places, very handsome colored lithographs of the steamships City of New York and City of Paris of the Inman Line. There is no reason to doubt that such very attractive advertisements are influential.
