Do you have rats ready for their closeup?


From the EV Grieve inbox...and this is legit -- I exchanged e-mails with one of the assistant producers...

Larry - I was swarmed by a gang of rats about a year ago on that very corner. Horrifying and fascinating at the same time.

I haven't seen as many in Tompkins Square Park of late. Maybe the hawks thinned the herd?

Last summer was the worst I've ever seen around here in 25 years. The tremendous density of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood has really upped the population.
I expect this summer to be even worse. breeding rats combined with emptied storefronts and closed eateries boost rat populations even more than occupied food establishments
I must admit though it is fascinatingly grotesque to see the suckers pancaked in the middle of the street.
