New York City isn’t exactly the sort of place where you find empathy and warmth without looking for it. Having a heart in The Big Apple is not suggested, and you can find yourself in a downtrodden state in a hurry in the city that never sleeps.

Footage captured by Haylee Pentek on Tuesday shows a long table set up with an elaborate traditional Thanksgiving spread, including turkey, sweet potato, and macaroni and cheese.
The impromptu menu received rave reviews.
“The mac and cheese was fire,” Pentek said on her Tik Tok post, and told Storyful that she happened across the celebration by chance while on the L train.
Images of the gathering could be found on Twitter.
