Why Are Those Kids Alone?
The answer is (almost) always the same
The other day, while waiting for the F train, my partner noticed two small children standing eerily close to the platform edge. He asked me, “Why are those kids alone?”
(My partner has lived in NYC since 1992. Isn’t it amazing that he can still be surprised by something like this? After everything he has seen in this city, he still notices two small kids standing too close to a train platform.)
