Walked out of Citibank on 24th and Bwy this morning around 11:30 and witnessed a tall black nanny (probably 5'10" plus) with a very short haircut yelling at an already sobbing/whimpering little Asian girl (about 3 yrs old) with pigtails, pink crocs, jean jacket. It’s a very busy area right near Eataly and Madison Square Park and she was unabashed at yelling at this child…God knows how she behaves in private and when the child is not seated. The girl was not throwing a tantrum or even crying loudly like children often cry. I was appalled and asked her please not to scream. As a working mother who just happened to take the day off, it was hard to walk away. I hope this message gets to the parents.
