September 11, 2001, is a day that no one will ever forget. The attacks on the World Trade Center cut off the southernmost point of Manhattan from the rest of New York City with no way home. The survivors were directed towards the piers, where they were saved and sent to safe places on Ellis Island and in New Jersey. Those boats who helped that day did what they could to help fellow Americans in need.
I believe I owe it to those who perished to read as much as can about this travesty and tell others who may not know. I never truly knew how so many people escaped downtown New York City. I never gave any thought to the fact that they would evacuate via the waterways. Knowing that so many people and companies stepped up and lent a helping hand is amazing. On 9/11, the boards rescued 240k people and saved their lives.
We Will Never Forget Those We Lost.
