Rumor has it that 11th Street's Titanic Joe has set sail and donated his collection to the Greater Astoria Historical Society.
Aw, hell, it's not a rumor!
From "Titanic Joe" Colletti:
"I am extremely happy that GAHS is going to preserve this collection for future generations. I did it for the people that died on the boat - NY has very few memorials to the Titanic and after speaking to one of the survivors who mentioned this to me, I decided to create something dedicated to their memory."
Joe grew up in Hunters Point but has moved to Sunnyside.
GAHS will be working with him on various ideas to keep the memorial alive.
