I was at the gym when the plane went down into the Hudson River watching TV.
The first local news chopper was NBC.
They showed all the Waterway Taxis and the Circle Line and the Tug Boats surrounding the plane and a big ferry at the back of the plane stabilizing it so the passengers could get out and off the plane and then the water taxi's rushed them to warmth and safety.

Every NYer is reminded on 9/11 when they see something like this- because that is how New York is. But what we are reminded of is if you are in trouble help comes from everywhere.

It isn't just small town America that helps its neighbors... really it isn't!

I LOVE NEW YORK!

It's incredible that all the passengers and crew managed to get out of that plan.. and to safety. Incredible response from the water taxis and ferries ... those photos are amazing.  Here's another photo taken before the taxis and ferrys arrived on scene - taken by a passenger on one of the ferries on the way to help w/ the efforts to get everyone off the plane.  That had to be so scary to be on that plane....

The pilot is amazing...and the crew...and the passengers.  To land so safely even on water is some feate (sp).  I heard that everyone was off the plane in 2 minutes. 
NYorkers are a different breed...they really do rally together when it is important to do so.

Wow, those are some pics. We did not see anything like that on the news here. I was watching when it happened but everything was all grainy on CNN and Fox. When they were interviewing one of the passengers I kept screaming at the TV for someone to give the poor guy a coat.  The reporters were all over him and he was freezing with short sleeves on. The pilot deserves some kind of metal or something.
