What Lies Beneath

If you Google "sewers of NYC," you will find pictures like these.

The sewers of Paris are so remarkable that part of sewer system has been turned into a museum--Le Musée des Égouts de Paris.

We here in Hudson have often heard about our city's 19th-century stone sewers, but we never get to see them. In his report at the informal Common Council meeting on Monday, Rob Perry, DPW superintendent, shared this image of one of the sewers in Hudson, taken by a camera sent into the sewer in an effort to detect a suspected obstruction.

This is workmanship that has served us for way more than a century.
