DNAinfo New York: Parents Wheel crib to Eatery in Increasingly Family-Friendly Williamsburg

"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 parent's push the crib down the street, she didn't want to turn them away."

I think it's pretty hilarious, but then I wasn't sitting next to them.

    It's not really a crib, it's a portable cage.

      Interesting that DNAInfo has already edited the paragraph you quoted:

      Kenny added that she wasn't sure if the crib "passed fire code," but didn't want to turn the couple away after they had gone to the trouble of pushing it down street.

        Sorry, actually I think it was the folks at msn living who misquoted what was stated.
        My mistake, I saw and read the story at several sites.

        I was just discussing the crib incident with a friend who lives in Boca Raton, his response "We have a trend here in Boca of people putting their dogs in strollers and bringing them to the mall or restaurants...It is actually refreshing to see a stroller with a child in it here"
