Residents of Sleepy Hollow, New York, say a retired New York Fire Department boat that responded to 9/11 is ruining their view of the Hudson River.


Residents of the Westchester County village say the John D. McKean is blocking their views from their expensive waterfront homes. FDNY officials say the fireboat was built in 1954 and was officially retired in 2010 — a year after it responded to the "Miracle on the Hudson" plane landing.


Owners Edward Taylor, Miguel Valle and Michael Kaphan pooled together about $70,000 and purchased the boat to save it from the scrapyard. Taylor says the boat leases a dock alongside several boats working on the Tappan Zee Bridge.


Resident Robert William says "I wouldn't call it an eyesore. But it's just not a good fit."

I can quote The Golden Girls for any situation in life . :)
