East Coast Cities

Something I realized while on holiday was how many major US East Coast cities were built on swamps, either complete or partial: Savannah, Charleston, Boston, New York City, Washington D.C., New Orleans... and yet people COMPLAIN when rain floods the streets:


This is from when Market St. flooded in Charleston in 2012.

Guys, just... seriously... if your town/city/hamlet is built on swamp land, or below the water line (New South Ferry 1 station), there WILL BE FLOODS... just... yeah...

When these places were founded, they were on land the Natives didn't want...gee, I wonder why?
SWAMP LAND.
