(NYPOST) — A Brooklyn girl with a debilitating fear of large crowds is asking a judge to let her enroll in a small Upper West Side high school.
The student, a 14-year-old incoming freshman identified as T.M. in court papers, breaks out in hives and has panic attacks when she finds herself surrounded by people.
“When she was in the sixth grade she went to a concert and suffered a panic attack. Once she saw that she was surrounded by a large crowd she started hyperventilating, crying and she broke out with hives all over her skin,” according to the Manhattan Supreme Court filing against the city Department of Education.
