Five children enjoy a canoe ride in the backyard of a house at 2235 Creston Avenue near 182 Street. Meanwhile, a boy in the water looks on while his friend (Bronx Democratic leader Charles Buckley) watches from shore with his dog nearby.
This boy lives at the Mission of the Immaculate Virgin Group Home in the Laconia neighborhood. A heart-shaped gift from his girl friend is displayed on the wall. He is nearing 18 years of age and must soon leave the home.
A pre-school boy at the Riverdale Temple Nursery School seems lost in thought. When told by the photographer that he looked like "an angel in a Renaissance painting" he remarked that he had been told that before.
