“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.

“Cops all over the city do nice things like this every day. It just happens that someone took a photo of me,” Meyers said in a post on the NYPD’s Facebook page.

Most people think of NYPD in terms of what is seen on cop shows on television. The job, as they call it, is a lot more than what is portrayed.
