A shutterbug captured this photo of a gentleman cop helping an elderly woman across the street in Brooklyn.
“I thought it was really cool that he helped her,” photographer Dovid Zaklikowski, 33, said Wednesday. “I was just walking and snapped the picture.”
The father-of-four snapped the photo on Tuesday in front of the Jewish Children’s Museum on Eastern Pkwy. in Crown Heights and posted it on Facebook.
The NYPD said the cop is P.O. Mark Meyers from the 71st precinct and that he was unavailable for comment.
“I couldn’t let this moment slip by,” said Zaklikowski, an archivist at Lubavitch Archives. “But did not want to disturb the two, who looked like they were so involved in getting across the street, so I took the photo from a distance.”
