RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A nurse from Virginia took a unique path to travel to New York to help out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than risk flying during the crisis, 26-year-old Rachel Hartley and her husband sailed hundreds of miles to Brooklyn last month.

Hartley tells the New York Post she has been working four night shifts a week at NYU Langone Brooklyn and has been living on the boat with husband Taylor at a marina in Brooklyn Heights.

The marina owner has even waived thousands of dollars in monthly fees for the couple.
