Received Wednesday, July 14, 2010
It was at 244 smith st, (bead store in cobble hill, brooklyn) on tuesday july 13 from noon to one. Two children, blonde, older one named Maeve maybe 8, younger boy in stroller. Nanny was middle aged carribean woman with long wooden necklace. She came in on a personal errand, completely ignoring the children. The one in the stroller screamed consistently, which was ignored by the nanny as Maeve tried to comfort him. At one point the stroller tipped over while the kid was in it, backwards. The sales lady and older girl rushed to help and the nanny seemed unconcerned. She then proceeded to stand inside the doorway of the store for over an hour waiting for the rain to stop, as the younger child quietly sobbed and the older one begged her to leave. It was baffling. Also, it was drizzling. Also, I did not see her speak a word to either child. All I could think was, I bet their parents don't know this is happening. She needs to not be near children. Ever.
