Children at play seem unconcerned about the muddy puddle the girl is wading through, at the corner of Shakespeare Avenue and 170th Street. The girl drinks her soda on what is probably a hot summer day. The wall in the rear is marked has graffiti.
This sad scene suggests a violent end, as a teenager's casket is carried by family and friends along St. Ann's Avenue in the North New York neighborhood. The deceased's girl friend, at the front of the procession, is comforted by an older woman.
