Remembering a retired FDNY fireboat that helped 9/11 rescue, recovery effort
At 8:46 a.m. on the bright morning of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, Huntley Gill was fast asleep in his Manhattan apartment. Tim Ivory was getting breakfast at a place near the New Jersey marina where he was living on his boat. Jessica DuLong was in her Brooklyn flat working on a freelance story.
Within 24 hours all three would be aboard the John J. Harvey, an old fireboat tied up just a short walk from the smoldering remains of the World Trade Center.
