City of Water Day, Part 2 -- Fireboat John J. Harvey

The Audubon Cruise ended at Governors Island, where, as we disembarked, we spied the line for standby tickets for ships tours (sailing and dockside.) We decided to stand on line and see if we could score tickets, and we did! We were able to take a free ride up the East River on a historic FDNY fireboat, the John J. Harvey, and enjoy watching them shoot off the water cannons that they use to put out fires.
