Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
A boy with a water balloon is a creature never to be trusted. Ha.
These kids were making the best of it on a hot summer day in the city. The street was shut off from traffic for a summer neighborhood party. The fire hydrant is the urban equivalent of a sprinkler.
The above photos come at the perfect time.
I was recently invited to write a guest post for Brooklyn Memories Most Green. Jamie Dedes asked me to post on her blog, where she reflects on her fond memories of growing up in Brooklyn.
Kids in Manhattan grow up very quickly. They usually live in larger apartment buildings and see just about everything under the sun. It's tough to shock a kid who has grown up in Manhattan.
Kids who call Brooklyn home have an easier time of it. They often know their neighbors and there is a sense of neighborhood. The pace is slower. Though their homes are certainly in the city, there is room to be a kid.
