How the Fireboat John J. Harvey Was Invited to “Do Water”


Photographed from the foredeck of USS New York.

Dear Friends:

My heretofore unpublished photo of the venerable retired Fire Boat Harvey “doing water” as an unscheduled¬† salute on the 10th Anniversary of 911 is featured with the anecdote behind how it happened, during my Wall Street Journal assignment for the anniversary in 2011.

“”¬† is a new and exciting “in-depth” website featuring the NY Waterfront this week.
