Let Ruben Natal-San Miguel's Photos of Kids Playing in Fire Hydrants Cool You Off Today

Since 2003, New York architect and photographer Ruben Natal-San Miguel has been snapping photos of the City's most iconic summer scene, kids playing in fire hydrants.

“Fire hydrant culture is one of the most endearing and beautiful ones remaining from the rich street life of New York City,” he said. “There is so much innocence, joy, fun, carelessness, and humanity in them.”

San Miguel's collection of photos will be on display as part of "The Rights of Summer" exhibition at the Ripe Art Gallery on Long Island starting August 8th.

With the temperature in the City headed north of 90° for the next 5 days, I just want to live in these photos.
