May 1st, 2014 – the great Philadelphia Schuylkill River flood of 2014. Traffic snarled, roads flooded out, nerves frayed… but on the bright side, some really cool Schuylkill River photos and videos!
At Delphic Digital, we’ve seen this before. Every couple of years we get a bit of flooding in Manayunk and Main Street has to be shut down. A couple years ago, there were even a few people canoeing down Main Street (do not try, please- they were later issued citations). No matter how maddening, this is the stuff that builds character and shows how resilient the neighborhood of Manayunk is (cue Chumbawumba – I get knocked down). We’re very proud to be here in the great city of Philadelphia and we’re not going to let a bit of water spoil our day.
Here are some of the photos we’ve captured, right around the corner from our office on Shurs Lane:
