Cadman Plaza park in Brooklyn Heights

Received Wednesday, April 23, 2008
nanny sighting logo This afternoon, (4/23) at Cadman Plaza park in Brooklyn Heights at around 4PM. A little boy between two and a half and three, light brown hair and hazel eyes, rosy cheeks, wearing army green and navy striped t shirt, light blue and white kind of train engineer striped pants and navy blue shoes. I think he said his name was Devon -- I can't be sure. He was wandering on his own in the woods toward Cadman Plaza West and on the pavement by the war memorial at the north part of the park for quite a while with no supervision. A woman walking her dogs asked me if he was with me as I got my own kid strapped in the stroller to leave the park. It took a good five minutes for his nanny, a thick, dark skinned black woman, possibly with braids, in a black t-shirt over a white t-shirt with black pants or jeans, to appear. And he might have been wandering alone for a good five minutes or so before that. She finally came up from somewhere on a bench in the middle of the astroturf area all the way up to where he had wandered by the war memorial and took him away without making eye contact with me.

Sounds like Nanny might have been engaging in a very enthralling conversation and wasn't paying attention!

If you are going to post a sighting, good or bad, speculation should be left out of your post. Report the facts, please, and if you have to add in your two pennies, leave your opinions in the comments.

Since the OP was there for more than 5 minutes ,I guess she can state her opinion of the situation.
I would be concerned too if I had seen this. Too bad you don't know who she works for.

Jane evidently thought it was good enough to post - what's the problem?

I'm the original poster and i did exactly what i was told to do in the directions. I was edited a slight bit in my physical description of the nanny only. I had seen this boy wandering around for several minutes before I stepped in to look for his babysitter and thought that was relevant in explaining the scenario.
