Harvey will be donated to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. For more information or to make a donation, please visit http://www.ttof.org.This is the inspiring true story of the John J. Harvey—a retired New York City fireboat reinstated on September 11, 2001. Originally launched in 1931, the Harvey was the most powerful fireboat of her time. After the September 11 attacks, with fire hydrants at Ground Zero inoperable and the Hudson Rivers water supply critical to fighting the blaze, the fire department called on the Harvey for help.

There were adjustments—forcing water into hoses by jamming soda bottles and wood into nozzles with a sledgehammer—and then the fireboats volunteer crew pumped much-needed water to the disaster site. The John J. Harvey proved she was still one of New Yorks Bravest!Maira Kalman brings a New York City icon to life, celebrating the energy, vitality and hope of a place and its people.
