Remembering the 9/11 Boatlift: America's Largest Water Evacuation
11am. Online
Zoom discussion, short film and Q&A.
Following the September 11 attacks, people were unable to leave Lower Manhattan due to the closure of roads, bridges and tunnels. Within minutes of the plane hitting the first tower, multiple fireboats from the New York City Fire Department rushed to the scene, and the U.S. Coast Guard coordinated a convoy of hundreds of merchant ships, tugboats, ferries and other vessels to evacuate stranded and injured victims. This extraordinary rescue was memorialized in the 2011 short documentary film Boatlift documenting the evacuation of more than 500,000 civilians in just nine hours—the largest maritime evacuation conducted in the history of the United States, moving more people from the island than even the 1940 evacuation of Allied troops from France. See the short documentary film Boatlift: An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience narrated by Tom Hanks, followed by a panel discussion among National Maritime Historical Society trustee emeritus RADM Richard Larrabee, USCG (Ret.), USCG Safety and Security Division Chief for Sector New York John Hillin, president of the New Jersey Sandy Hook Pilots Association Capt. Andrew McGovern, founder of the fireboat John J. Harvey Huntley Gill, and USCG-licensed marine engineer and author of “Saved at the Seawall: Stories from the September 11 Boat Lift” Jessica DuLong. Free. Tickets at

Dear Students, Staff, Faculty, Alumni and Neighbors,

We are pleased to announce that Metropolitan College, in partnership with our colleagues at NYC Health & Hospitals, mobile COVID-19 vaccination units will be stationed at our campus located at 60 West St, New York, NY 10006 on September 7-10.

This schedule will enable those of you who have not yet received the vaccine to get one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or two doses of the Pfizer vaccine three weeks apart—right outside our doors.

This is a walk-in vaccine clinic—no appointments are needed. 

We encourage you to get the COVID 19 vaccine if you haven’t already done so. The pandemic is not over yet, and hospitalization and infection rates have begun to rise again in New York City. The safety and effectiveness of the COVID vaccines have been demonstrated, and the vaccines have played a significant role in reducing serious illness.

Thank you for your efforts to keep our communities safe!

Over the course of its ten years of operation thus far, the VCF has awarded $7.76 billion to more than 34,400 individuals who have suffered death or personal injury as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and their aftermath.
