A Harlem resident committed a gentle act of kindness when she gave her shoes to a barefoot homeless woman on a crowded MTA train, Pix11 reports.

Kay Brown tells Pix11 she was heading home from Times Square Monday evening when she noticed a homeless woman board the crowded 3 train with no shoes on. Instead of moving away from the woman or ignoring her, the nonprofit worker asked the woman what size shoes she wore, and when it turned out they were the same size, Brown took off her boots and gave them to her.

The moment left the unidentified woman in tears.
