Rats all over NYC
I recently noticed many rats scurrying about in the Chambers Street subway station. Apparently, I am not alone. As reported by the NY Post, rat complaints are up 39% since 2014.
Timothy Wong, an exterminator in Chinatown, cited the rising number of homeless digging in trash.
“There is so much food out there on the street,” said Wong, of M&M Pest Control. “The rats are getting bigger and bolder. We’re seeing them in the parks an hour before sunset. Some folks are seeing them in the afternoon.”
Sounds like De Blasio’s fault to me.
