Jessica DuLong is a journalist, historian, and chief engineer, emerita of the retired 1931 New York City fireboat, John J. Harvey. She served at Ground Zero, spending four days supplying Hudson River water to fight the fires at the World Trade Center. In her book she tells the greatest 9/11 story you’ve never heard—how boat captains and crews delivered to safety nearly 500,000 people stranded on Manhattan Island on one of America’s darkest days.
