I saw something strange this morning when I went to Whole Foods. A woman was outside the store milling about. I think nothing of this. I go in the store , the time is about 9:30 AM, I leisurely shop and leave the store approximately a 1/2 hour later. The nanny is still there. She looks anxious. 30 seconds later, a large Black man with a half beard, grey logo shirt, gold chain, approaches her slyly and reaches for her hand and slides her something. So quick, anyone could have missed it. As he disappears I see her open her palm to reveal a tiny plastic wrapped packet. Tiny. She sticks it in her back pocket. I am waiting for my help to get home with these bags so I remain standing in the vicinity. The woman heads off towards 14th. Street.
From this I have made these assumptions:
1) The woman was a nanny or sitter. She was pushing a very expensive, high BUG pram and her clothing and appearance was not conducive to that.
2) The woman was buying drugs. She never went in Whole Foods. And was clearly using the area as a meeting place.
Description of this nanny: About 5'5", white, extremely thin. I would guess around 100 lbs. Wearing blue jeans and a striped L/s cotton style shirt. White, with straight, Lt. brown hair that looked like it needed to be combed. Wide set, very pretty eyes, pale skin, nice mouth. Could have been very pretty if she put some effort in to it. She did not carry a handbag.
The child: A white, boy with brownish red, curly hair. He was not very visible. I cannot speculate as to age.
The stroller as I said was a Bug. Chrome and pale green with a black net underneath that was empty. No diaper bag, groceries, etc.
