Vermont Square Park, located on W 47th St., is conveniently located in the middle of the Vermont Harbor neighborhood. Among other amenities, the public park boasts a lush green lawn, picnic tables, a basketball court, public restrooms, and a play yard for children.
At one end of the park, Vermont Harbor resident, Mario Suerta, also an immigrant from Ecuador, sits by his bike as he smokes cannabis, drinks his favorite energy drink, and scratches a lottery ticket in hopes of “becoming a millionaire.”
At the other end of the park, the Ruíz cousins, each three years old, play with one another on the play set. Here, Jeremiah keeps guard in the “cave” to make sure no one else enters.
Yitzhak, who only speaks Spanish, says he loves to run to the top of the play set.
Yitzhak’s cousin, Jeremiah, who also only speaks Spanish, loves to roll down the slide before jumping off.
Eytan Wallace’s hands hard at work, typing an essay for his Introduction to Holocaust History course.
As seen in this ant POV, three-year-old Jeremiah Ruíz runs after jumping off the slide at Vermont Square Park.
Although the above image could be confused for many objects, it actually is the inside of a plastic red cup, similar to those found at CVS, Target, and Bed Bath and Beyond stores.
Peek-A-Boo! Inside this blue slide, Yitzhak Ruíz hides from his cousin, Jeremiah. Jeremiah would later find his cousin during this game of hide-and-seek.
These are Eytan Wallace’s eyes. The iPhone was held up very close to his face. In case you could not tell, Wallace is in fact smiling in this picture.
After reaching the bottom of the slide, Yitzhak Ruíz tries to climb up but slips in the process. This picture shows Ruíz as he is in the process of falling down.

This picture is a mystery to me, and hopefully to you. Could there be a hidden message in the image? I believe there is, and would love to know if you do as well. That is why I believe this photo stands out as a “WTF shot.”
Using the 10 second timer feature on my iPhone 5c’s camera, I left the phone on my desk, and smiled for the picture 10 seconds later.
These are hats/caps belonging to Eytan Wallace’s roommate, Anthony. From the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and of course the Trojans, you can’t go wrong with wearing any of these head coverings.
“MMM…Cinnamon!” I couldn’t agree more with this slogan — MMM, indeed! If it were not for the fact that I exercise daily, I do not know what i would do, as my sweet tooth certainly controls my life. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of my favorite cereals!
