How an FDNY fireboat that rescued 9/11 survivors lives on

John D. McKean, a 56-year-old FDNY retired fireboat, will be a museum soon.

On September 11, 2001, the John D. McKean brought more than 200 people from New York City to safety in New Jersey. The boat also helped evacuate US Airways Flight 1549 — “Sully’s” plane that landed in the Hudson in 2009.

Its new home is just north of the Tarrytown Lighthouse in Sleepy Hollow.

Mackenzie Dawson talks to its new owners in the NY Post.
