It's actually legal for anyone to park at a hydrant if the driver is in the car

I've been amused by the fire hydrants in Washington Heights. The dominicans open them and use them as sprinklers. Cars get car washes for free. I try not to think of where the water is coming from, but I've got to admit that I havent exactly minded getting splashed myself in these hot days!!

The kids in my area often open them up with wrenches and play in the water when it gets really hot. Sometimes I purposely walk through them too.

I did it just now. It felt great:-)
Not to sound like a hippie or anything, but the only thing is some5imes I see one gushing out water but no longer being used. Thats a waste. But last time I ran around the reservoir, it still had plenty of water so I guess its all good:-)

It's not a waste though if you're splashing in it?...so when a building or a house goes on fire and there's no water/pressure, well, at least it wasn't wasted while people cooled off. It's not about how much water is in the reservoir.

I think if you just go to the local firehouse they will open up the hydrant and install a sprinkler cap when its this hot out.

They charge a $40 deposit and you get your deposit back upon returning the cap.
