Couple brings baby and crib to hip brunch spot

We all love brunch, but did these parents go too far?

Check out this photo of a bold couple who pushed their baby's crib to a Brooklyn brunch spot.

The restaurant’s daytime manager, Susie Kenny, told DNAinfo: “That certainly was a first. We were laughing all day. It was a highlight.”

The crib took up a large portion of the sidewalk, and Kenny added that she wasn’t sure if this “passed fire code,” but after watching the parents push the crib down the street, she didn’t want to turn them away.

New York's finest should have given them a ticket for obstructing a sidewalk. "To hell with the rest of the world, let's just inconvenience everyone else and block wheel chair access. I would have called the police and DEMANDED THAT THEY BE GIVEN A TICKET FOR BLOCKING WHEELCHAIR ACCESS. This is typical NY Bull Shi$. Just another reason why I hated to travel to NY on business. Those people are SICK.

Memo to self: NEVER eat at this restaurant OR ANY restaurant that this couple goes to! PLEASE stay in Brooklyn. The rest of the world DOES NOT NEED YOU!

I don't have a problem with them taking their kid out to eat.  I have a 2 year old and we go out to eat with him with no problems.  However, we do use a high chair on those occasions :)


What I can't believe is that the parents "pushed the crib down the street."  That just seems kind of weird.  Most people use a stroller - which by the way, could have doubled as a high chair at that cafe - and nobody would have thought twice about that!

what did they hurt they were out side give me a break learn how to cook and keep ur **** home have u ever cooked him a meal probably not u can't put  your phone down long enough listening to a bunch of whiners losers go to hell

just when you think people can not be more assinine they go and do this.....so lets look at this from all views ..... the kids is big enough to be at least 2 which means they should be training him on how to act and sit down at a table in a social setting thats number one , second can you imagine all the germs and pollution including smoke from passers by that is now embeded in this kids crib , third it IS a fire safety hazard , fourth if you really have to drag a crib out of the house to get a bit to eat then maybe you should just learn to cook and eat in , I AM VERY UPSET that such idiodic behavior  was displayed in my lovely hometown of BROOKLYN and to the resturant owner who indulged thier ignorance , I will be sure to avoid your resturant in the future ...... please be advised i am the mother of a 8 yr old and 3 yr old ...not biased just saying......REALLY!!!???!!!

Yes, it was blocking the sidewalk. Legally, a restaurant must leave a certain distance between its tables and the road. This 'block' could have got the restaurant cited, and if someone, let's say someone pushing a stroller, was forced to the edge of the sidewalk and fell onto the road--well just watch out for $$$$$ law suit.
