Watersedge Teenagers

Photography by David Robert Crews

These kids are hangin' out across the street from Watersedge Park, which is one of Dundalk's waterfront parks. From where they are standing they can look across the waters of Bear Creek to see the old Bethlehem Steel Mill and former Sparrows Point Shipyard.

30 or so years before this photo was taken, I used drive by this spot on some Saturday or Sunday afternoons to see if any of my old schoolmates who grew up in Watersedge were hangin' out around there. Watersedge is a neighborhood where there are muti-generations of families owning their own nice homes, any of these kids who hang out here might be an old friend of mine's child or grandchild, niece or nephew. It's a good place for them to socialize in public, because the families who live in the homes along that street may know the kids or their parents or grandparents or aunts and uncles, or one of those families' kids might be out there with them, so there's little chance of any hooliganisms happening out there.
