 Lighting Coincides with Arrival of USNS Comfort to Help Fight COVID-19 Pandemic

NEW YORK (APRIL 1, 2020) – The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will light the USS Intrepid in red and white in gratitude to all the healthcare professionals helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and in honor of its newest neighbor, the USNS Comfort, which recently docked at Pier 90, just north of the Museum. The Museum will light Intrepid on Wednesday, April 1 through Wednesday, April 8.

“Lighting Intrepid is a symbolic way to say thank you to those near and far who are putting their own health at risk for the greater good,” said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, the Museum’s president. “We are also grateful for the USNS Comfort and to those serving on board, who are coming to aid New York City and provide relief during this crisis.”

With more than 1,000 hospital beds, Comfort is a seagoing medical treatment facility that arrived in New York City on Monday, with Navy medical and support staff assembled from 22 commands, and more than 70 civil service mariners.
