"I found an old photo from the nineteen-sixties of a kid wearing goggles as he basked in the spray unleashed by a fire hydrant. It made perfect sense to me. If you can’t make it to the pool or the beach, why not still wear goggles? It was so imaginative and practical. For some kids, the fire hydrant is the pool or the ocean" - artist Kadir Nelson 
Kadir Nelson's "Summertime City" is a beautiful painting that celebrates the century-old metropolitan tradition of turning fire hyrdants into sprinklers in the sweltering summer heat. It was featured on the cover of the New Yorker in 2018.
