nycsummerWatch this dramatic clip of dudes from Washington Heights dive bare-chested into the street and slide on soggy trash bags over concrete. Cue sparkling classical score. Ah, summer.

Inwood native Emmanuel Abreu aka DJBoy shot this video on July 22nd, as temperatures topped at 104 degrees and frolicking the makeshift fountains of fire hydrants wasn’t just fun, it was necessarily.

“I always imagined shooting a movie in the Heights,” he says. “This is just a teaser of what’s to come from me.”
