    I was at BKLYN design on Sunday- we go every year and enjoy it immensely. Not this year, however.

    The exhibit is being touted as being child friendly, but I didnt see evidence iof that- on the contrary! My 5 month old was very hungry and I went to a corner where there was no booth, and out of the way of others to feed her. I sat down on a random chair that was placed in the corner (it was not part of an exhibit), when a security guard came up and insisted I get up, she \\\”needed the chair\\\”. Have you tried to stop feeding a hungry baby? I stood up and continued to feed the baby from a standing position. The security guard stood over the chair like it was the most precious piece of furniture and 5 minutes later, carried it into the press room. I could have sat on it for the 5 minutes it took to feed the baby. I did try to complain to the the guy in charge of security before I left, but didnt really get an apology. Happy Mother\\\’s day BKLYN Design! Child friendly indeed~!

    They really should know better in a neighborhood filled with kids, and with the demographic they are trying to reach….
