The 4th in New York

On the 4th of July, it is common to see family reunions, concerts and fireworks. Businesses close down for the day and it seems like the whole city is outside celebrating. The impact of Independence Day is to bring family, friends and partners together to realize the importance of one another. Leon and Clark decided to spend the day together skating through Manhattan, feeling the vibes of the city. Dodging through groups of people watching the fireworks, displaying their passion.
