This group of pre-school children, free to walk with their teachers, stopped to admire a bodega’s cat on Greenwich Street near Christopher Street. Soon they were joined by a group of young toddlers, who got a free ride in a special “KinderVan” wagon, pulled by their ‘conductors.’ Both the children and adult pedestrians had fun playing with the cat, Summertime in this spontaneous moment on the street.
