I saw this nanny enter a store yesterday, (7/17) at around 3:30. The name of the store is Great Expectations on Chambers Street near Broadway. This store is a closeout location, sort of junky and definitely no place for kids, let alone a six month old who is not your own. She was in there for almost a full hour, during which time the baby was fussy and at one time I had to bring to her attention that he was chewing on a price tag of one of the many items she had piled on his stroller and had the whole tag, which had staples on it, in his mouth. She had walked away from him and I had the chance to pry the tag away from him before she came to his side. She handed him a pacifier and went back to what she had been doing. I did photograph her face for fear of a confrontation, and don't believe in photographing people's children without permission, but I do hope that this child's parents see this post. She speaks with a very flat and grammatically incorrect accent, possibly from St. Lucia, or one of the neighboring islands like Dominica, or Grenada.
