U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Division Commander Anthony Reardon.

Long Island City, HarborLAB’s home base, lost its greatest advocate for safety on the harbor on September 18. Tony Reardon was elected division commander in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary in 2012 and served with the NYPD Harbor Unit Auxiliary, as a New York State certified safe boating instructor and teaching other classes. He was generous with his skills and encouragement, welcoming all to our local waters. He offered to provide safe boating classes to HarborLAB for free this winter. We’re saddened to not benefit from his tutelage but will follow through with his successors in his honor. Our condolences to his family and many friends.
