On this day in 1936, the RMS Queen Mary arrived in New York from England and France on her second voyage. The crossing took four hours longer than her maiden trip. According to the New York Times, "She made the passage of 3,158 miles from Cherbourg Breakwater to the Ambrose Channel Lightship in 4 days 16 hours and 13 minutes at an average speed of 28.14 knots."
