You can actually get in the water at the beach and cool off, you don't have to sit on the sands for 5 hours.

I can't say it has always been ghetto, because back in the day air conditioning simply didn't exist. It was more of an "every man" thing...the wealthy had their summer homes...everyone else went to the beach, pools, fire hydrants etc. The wealthy were busy being fabulous in restuarants, bars, while the "every man" sat on the stoops chatting with neighbors.

As far as it being legal, it's also legal to wear your pants below your draws or play rap music from your cell phone on the bus or subway. Doesn't mean it's not ghetto.

i get that. it doesn't mean you have to
be ghetto just because you're poor, but
there still are a lot of ghettos in nyc.

the cops must not mind open hydrants,
because people could just go to the
nearest public pool too.

I think so. My neighborhood is pretty ghetto and there are open fire hydrants all over the place.

This guy right here calls it as he sees it.

No sugar coating involved.

He does call it as he sees it, unfortunately he has cataracts and a lazy eye. So don't put too much stock into what he "sees."
