I love to hear about items that the City of New York gives away freely. For example, did you know that anyone (well, anyone over 18) can obtain a city approved spray cap? For those of you who aren’t in the know, a spray cap is something that is affixed to a fire hydrant:

Hydrants can be opened legally if equipped with a City-approved spray cap. One illegally opened hydrant wastes up to 1,000 gallons of water per minute, while a hydrant with a spray cap only puts out around 25 gallons per minute.

So, if you are interested in turning your block in to a water park, head down to the local firehouse and get your very own spray cap.
