    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     gtnoffsinger says he was abroad a coastguard auxiliary vessel shadowing the movement of the space shuttle Enterprise from her berth at JFK to pier 86. "The scene was filled with excitement and patriotism from people on the boats. You could really feel the pride in America and our accomplishments in all the cheers and waving flags along the entire trip," he says. "I was thinking, wow, I am so privileged to be a part of this. No matter your financial situation, gender, religious persuasion or other individual status, we were all New Yorkers and proud Americans that day."
