Police End Kids’ Street Shower – Under Orders
At the corner of Cherry St. and Rutgers Pl. on the Lower East Side, sweltering kids turned on a fire hydrant and had a cooling shower until the cops came around. Under orders, the police turned the water off. In sympathy with the kids however, they scolded no one and left at once to do the same job at another corner. We suspect this hydrant went on again soon after the cops left.
