New York City LIVE

June 13, 2023

Join us as we talk with the John J Harvey fireboat team in New York Harbor and learn about her heroic efforts on September 11. See the boat do a full water cannon display from the Hudson River!

Cruise around lower Manhattan and hear stories about their heroic efforts on September 11, 2001. Now a museum and education center, the Harvey previously served 6 decades as an active FDNY steam fireboat since she was built in 1931. The boat is history afloat in NY Harbor playing an integral role in protecting our waterways throughout her active years, and also since then when she was called back into service to aid FDNY fireboats on 9/11. Weather permitting, we’ll cruise to meet the boat docked at Pier 66 and climb aboard for an exciting behind the scenes tour with Captain Huntley Gill. If time allows, we’ll watch as Harvey starts her engines and prepares for a truly spectacular full water cannon display from the Hudson River.

John J Harvey co-hosts: Captain Huntley Gill, Chief Engineer Jessica DuLong
