The heatwave that we and the rest of the East Coast have been experiencing was especially relentless today. Note to self: don't go down into a subway station unless you know the train is pulling in. Waiting on the platform is akin to a trip to Hades. The kids in this photo knew how to beat the heat. They were experiencing a terrible heatwave themselves in New York on July 6, 1911 when this photo was taken. I am sitting about an inch from my AC but boy does a block of ice sound nice. 

This and other summertime images from the past can be found here.
