The Great Flood of 1913 occurred between March 23 and March 26, after major rivers in the central and eastern United States flooded from runoff and several days of heavy rain and melt. In Troy, New York, the Hudson River crested at 29.7 feet above flood stage, which is still the highest level ever recorded, far higher than Hurricane Irene. There are no known moving pictures of the flood, this video is built from an image captured on the western shore of the Hudson River where the present-day Congress Street Bridge touches down in Watervliet, New York. Today, you can still find markings on the buildings of Front Street approximating the water level. (Photographer Unknown)
Thanks to Smart Fish Productions of Portland, Oregon for bringing in Nor'easter Films for post-production work on a project destined to be an installation of cycling video in Heathrow Airport in England for Delta Airlines, Travel Oregon, and Travel Portland. Shot on location in and around Portland, Oregon by Johnathon Allen, this project showcases why the area is considered by many to be America's cycling capital to a global audience.

It's always cool when you see something old restored into something new. Brown's Brewing Company in Troy bought an older location in Hoosick Falls and turned it into something really special. Photographer John Bulmer captured a beautiful image of the renovated Brown's in Hoosick Falls in 2016. Just the other day Brown's shared both his photo and a photo of the same location taken 125 years ago. It's pretty amazing to see the photos next to each other.
