3rd Street and Avenue A

Night of Saturday June 14th, pouring pouring rain. Looking down the glittering river of Avenue A into the Lower East Side–the black sky flashes red, then a shower of red sparks bursts above the rooftops. Green, silver, bright white–they’re shooting off fireworks downtown in the pouring rain. The thunder booms and the fireworks boom, lightning flashes and the fireworks flash.

Kid walks by, baseball cap, baggy shorts, hands shoved deep in his pockets.

Kid: (to no one) Hell no, fireworks in the rain? I don’t understand New York, man, I don’t understand New York.
