On Sept. 11th 2001 my friend Gary left his apartment and headed the only direction he could - south. It took him a day to finally make it to my apartment on the Upper Westside, where he stayed until mid-December, when he finally returned to live in his home on West St., one block south of where the South Tower had stood. This is the story of how Gary (and 500,000 other New Yorkers) made it to safety on 9/11.
Boatlift, narrated by Tom Hanks, was produced and directed by Eddie Rosenstein and the executive producers were Stephen Flynn and Sean Burke. Boatlift premiered on September 8th, 2011 at the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit.
