You know it’s a hot day when the fire hydrant is uncapped in New York. This fire hydrant is a water play area on the corner of Delancey Street, across from the Film Vault and Transformers. It’s fun to splash around and run through the water. We love watching adults and kids cooling off and having fun over here.
