hot town, summer in the city – my hood #4

yesterday’s freak heat wave almost broke a 130 year record.  it just kinda snuck up on us.  a humid 95 degrees is no joke – especially in this brick-oven of a city.

they ran around like tyrants, soaking up the open fire hydrants

water fight in front of the roach coach

the paparazzi got paparazzied

there's so many things i like about this scene. i mean, maybe its the girls braids with the blue beads, the motion of the throw, the girls vs. boys, the open courtyard, the trash in the corner... it's all really beautiful to me.

krissy drier in the rain

so we’re up on the roof taking shots in the rain.  it’s cold and dreary but everything looks awesome.  after i think we got the goods and before she’s about to freeze to death in that itty bitty dress, i call it a wrap.  we head back to the door and pull it.  nope.  pull it again – notta.  that sucker was locked up tight.  so here we are on the roof, it’s cold, raining and krissy is nearly naked.  i spot some ladies smoking way over on the roof of the building next to us and i’m yelling over to them, “hey!  help!  we’re locked on the roof!!” and they don’t budge.  they yell something back, but i couldn’t hear em.  i try to get them to come over to me, but they just wave their hands and go back inside.  so i hand over my umbrella and camera and start climbing down the rusty fire escape.  i make it all the way to the bottom and go back through the front door and take the elevator back up.  but by the time i got there, the nice ladies had come to krissy’s rescue.  thanks, nice ladies.
