Historic Flood Trashes Books

This photo was taken by Star Gazette reporter/photographer — and my friend — Jason Whong. Historic flooding in New York’s Southern Tier region left destruction everywhere. One of the hardest hit villages was Owego, where this photo was taken outside the Riverow Bookshop. Tons of books were destroyed by the flood, and it breaks my heart to see valuable materials like books turned to waste and debris.

Here are some other sad bookstore photos. This should not reflect in any way that Riverow Bookshop, above, is closing.
