At Penn Station around 5:40 PM, I watched a nanny browse magazines at a side shop while her charges, two girls; one about 2 and the other about 4, chased each other around in ever widening circles. The nanny had her back to the children the whole time. She, a Hispanic in a tan rain coat, with curly, feathered hair, no make up, tanned face, average weight and height, I approached. I asked her, "are those two with you" as I pointed across the walkway and down a bit. She nodded, "yes". I said, "I don't think they should be running around here like that. You need to keep your eye on them, anything can happen". She did not become angry or hostile. She looked frightened. I think she thought I was with INS or something. She shoved the magazine she was looking at down and ran after the girls, grabbed both of her hands and kept walking. The girls were wearing matching ski jackets that were pink, dark pink and white and both girls had blonde hair.
