Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn Heights, NY
I saw a nanny this morning around 11am (Wednesday, August 17th) at the Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn Heights. She was African American, older and slightly overweight. Her charge was 11 months old, blond Charlotte. She was strapped in a red Bugaboo stroller the entire time - about one hour. She desperately wanted to come out and was kicking, etc. The nanny, however, would not allow her to come out at all. The baby girl just wanted to play with the other kids - it is so safe there, she could have just kept her on the lawn and continued her phone conversations. Was this some sort of punishment? For an 11-month old? Seems very unreasonable and mean.
