Summary
"Dust to Deliverance is the gripping story of how the New York Harbor maritime community converged spontaneously to deliver stranded commuters, residents, and visitors out of harm's way. Even before the Coast Guard called for 'all available boats,' ferries, charter yachts, dinner boats, tugs, and other vessels had raced across New York Harbor to pick up passengers. In less than nine hours, they rescued nearly half a million people from Lower Manhattan, making this the largest waterborne evacuation in history."--
