Walking through Chelsea after art night last night I came across this fire hydrant the authorities had put a flow restrictor on. Unlike Inwood (my hood) this is a rare sight downtown. More of a curiosity to onlookers, there were no kids playing in the water, mostly tourists taking photos, a few people cooling off and a few bicycle riders pedaling quickly through the stream. It was hot as hell and the water was cold and very refreshing...
Some people cooled off their reluctant pets.
He let out a scream like a little girl
Some people casually walked into the stream. Clothing, shoes, bags, whatever.
Lots of cars cleaning the windshield....Others, just the face.
