Maggie Gyllenhaal did the school run with Ramona in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday (January 30). Maggie snacked on an apple while Ramona held onto her stuffed dog. The day before the 7-year-old was seen with dad Peter Sarsgaard.
Last year the Frank actress told Time Out New York why she loves raising her family in New York City.
She explained, “I love that my daughters are growing up trying all different kinds of food and meeting all kinds of people. That’s one thing I love about where we live in New York and New York in general—they meet all different people, and all different colors from all different places, and that’s important to me. And Brooklyn, now especially, is becoming such a popular place for families. I love that about Brooklyn.
“I mean, all my friends live in Brooklyn and most of my friends have little kids. And we’ve been in our neighborhood long enough that they know my kids at the market. One day I had to grab something from across the street and we were in this store that we go in all the time—Brooklyn Larder right near us—and Ramona knows everybody who works there, and she’s like “I’m fine, I’ll stay.”
She continued, “One of the people behind the counter said, “We’ll watch her, no problem.” She’s not the kind of girl who will just stay anywhere, but we have a real community. We have our coffee place, and we have our market, and we know what we like, and they know us too, and it feels good.”View Slideshow »»
