What time did Carpathia arrive in New York?

The commonly understood answer is late (about 9:30 PM) on the rainy evening of April 18th, 1912. However, there are many images of the ship "arriving in New York" or "survivors going ashore" that are clearly taken during daylight hours. For instance, this is a popular photo of wireless operator Harold Bride "arriving" in New York.

My suspicion is that Carpathia indeed arrived at night. I suspect that the movie footage of Carpathia "arriving" is from a completely different trip (or, perhaps, of Carpathia actually leaving New York). Moreover, the images of Harold Bride could be images of him from some other time or place.

Does anyone have an accurate answer?

Bride was taken off Carpathia on April 19th.
There are a few images taken by Carpathia in the afternoon 18th April when nearing New York. (Some footage show however a different voyage.)

Ah .....Here we go again .....relying on those old devils - the movies !!!!! LOL
In the 1997 movie "Titanic" there is apparently a scene at night or maybe while it was still dark just before daylight of "Rose" standing on the deck of the Carpathia, in the rain, and looking up at The Statue of Liberty . (Also according to some historians to be in error since the torch was not lighted in 1912.)

Here is Carpathia on the evening of April 18 dropping off Titanic’s lifeboats at the White Star pier before proceeding to the Cunard pier.

I think that you misunderstood. The "movie" that I was referring to was the historic footage circulating the internet that supposedly shows Carpathia arriving to New York with Titanic survivors aboard.

Thus, my question was regarding the time in which Titanic arrived and docked in New York.

After unloading the Titanic survivors and Titanic lifeboats , did the Carpathia start over again and resume and continue the original planned eastbound voyage ?

Not an "accurate answer".....Just a guess. If the Carpathia arrived at night, possibly Bride spent the night aboard Carpathia and was taken off as shown some time in the next day ?

Don't trust films. They are only for entertainment.
