Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Street Surfing
Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:
It was close to a hundred today so the hydrants were open. These kids had laid a plank in front of the spout and where “street surfing”. That and trying to charge passing cars 75 cent for a wash. As a business man I suggested they aim for the paper money and charge a dollar.
Ty-Shawn, Jaquan, Nahjee, and Dallas (I wrote it down) jumped at the chance for a picture. Now I have to bring back four copies of this picture and a Barbados flag (Dallas), a copy of the picture with sparkles (Nahjee), fruit soda (Jaquan) and a toy gun (Ty-Shawn). Got it.
