Title: Water, boy!

Children playing in spray of water from fire hydrant on plaza in front of housing project. Caption on verso: "Water, Boy!: Employing classic means of cooling off, kids at Fort Greene Houses romp in ecstasy as cool, cool H20 issues from a friendly hydrant. One of biggest police problems during yesterday's 99-degree scorcher was turning off errant hydrants without getting their uniforms drenched -- as if they would mind!"
