Manhattan Boatlift

Manhattan Boatlift

On this 13th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, I’d like to share a story I learned about recently.

Seeing the influx of volunteer boats and the number of people trying to get off the island, the Coast Guard organized what became the largest maritime rescue effort in history.
