Too hot in the streets and even hotter in the subway. Cooler by the water, but every fire hydrant is open, fanning the entire contents of the ocean onto the unforgiving pavement. Keds stick to asphalt as sticky as toffee, and kids pluck gobs of tar out of the streets and chew on it.
And the soundtrack is hot. The sun has nothing on the Heat Wave bumping out of parks and car stereos.
