My daughter was out with friends on Saturday in Manhattan and her bag was stolen. Luckily, her wallet was in her pocket, so she didn't lose her id or her debit card. The thief did make away with her cell phone and the keys to her apartment. Smartly, she called her phone -- and the MTA answered! An employee found her bag in a subway station on the Lower East Side and turned it in. Clara had everything except her Metrocard back in less than 24 hours.
So my thanks go out to the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the person who turned in Clara's bag.
I love New York!
