Those Brooklyn summers were brutal; you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. One time we kids did fry an egg on the hood of someone's car. When I was little we escaped to Rockaway Beach, and later on to Long Beach. By high school we stayed in the city and roasted. Top floor apartment with a black tar roof. A/C prohibited because building's electric system couldn't handle it. My parents put one in their bedroom anyway, and we lived in there - meals and all. Fuses were constantly blowing because everyone had the same idea. By the time my parents moved out the building had been rewired and almost everyone had A/C.
