The New York City heat wave ... New Yorkers have some ways to stay cool even though we are in a concrete furnace. Water, water, water... that seems to be the trick. From Red Tailed Hawks catching a cool drink in a water fountain to people playing in Columbus Circle. The record setting 105 degree temperature of this heat wave is just an opportunity to play instead of something to hide from.
