Thanks to Patrick Sison, Jenny Kane and Shoun Hill of the AP New York Headquarters photo desk for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"The sheer joy of her expression is touching - and made bittersweet from the city's previous problems with lead-tainted water. Structurally, the leading lines formed by the skeins of water and her outstretched arms focuses attention on the exuberance in her smile."
