John Jay Park in NYC (edited)

Received Wednesday, April 7, 2010
troubled emoticon On Monday, April 5th, I witnessed a huge fight between nannies at John Jay Park on the Upper East Side (77th and the East River). One nanny in particular was the ringleader, threatening to kill, "take down," and "mess up," the nanny she was arguing with. Quite a large crowd of nannies gathered around, along with their charges. The nanny in question was heavy set, African-American, with very short cropped hair. She had a City-Mini double (grey and orange) with 2 children. One child was an infant in the car seat, the other was a boy about 3 or 4 years old who had hearing aids. She threatened and harassed the other woman for about 20 minutes, following her around the park and chasing after her at times. How sad that her charges witnessed this!
4/8/10 Hi, I wrote to you about the nanny fight at JJ park. I got a picture of the nanny when I was back the next day. I didn't have my phone with me last night to send it with the original email. She's second from the left. Her face isn't towards the camera, but I was scared to get closer!!!
nanny abuse

wow. In my opinion, if my nanny was even one of the nannies standing around watching/allowing the behavior, I would still be quite upset. Call the police or AT LEAST just walk away so your charges aren't involved/watching!!

Maybe the other nanny ate her cookie and she got mad at her

op, can you describe the nanny who was the victim or any of the other kids/nannies involved?

Nannies are a vicious people. Never cross a nanny. Never leave a child alone with a nanny.

I don't really know what the other nannies looked like. Typical nannies, as bad as that sounds. The fight happened mid-park, traveled outside to the area between the handball courts and the playground, like where the snack carts are, and then went outside to the area between the big Glenwood building and the handball courts, like a little to the left (if you're exiting the park). Between 77th and 76th. There were TONS of kids standing with their nannies, and not just babies...some kids were as old as 6 and could DEFINITELY go home and tell their parents all about the profanity they heard!

Were both nannies cursing or just the one nanny who was chasing the other around? I may know the employer of one of these nannies and want to get get the facts straight.

The heavyset nanny was the one leading the charge. She was cursing up a storm and threatening to kill the other woman. I've heard through the grapevine that the nanny is employed in the building right next to the park...the big Glenwood building. Please, please, please if you know the parents, alert them!!!
