Irving Street

The ivy-covered building on the left is my former residence. This is  more serious flooding than what wiped out Rahway Public Library a decade ago. Rahway has always been a flood-prone town. Historically, the worst flooding occurred in the downtown area where the river becomes a tidal estuary,  but a massive Army Corps of Engineers levee project largely alleviated that.  Now due to upriver development & increased runoff,  many of Rahway's residential streets go underwater & more homes are flooded.
