"Rat Summit" held in Brooklyn, NY
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn - New Yorkers held a "Rat Summit" Thursday at Restoration Plaza in Bed-Stuy, one of the most rat infested neighborhoods in the city.
It was hosted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, along with City Council Member Robert Cornegy, along with Representatives from the Mayor's Community Affairs Unit, the Department of Buildings, Department of Education, and Department of Sanitation. All were there to answer questions.
Everyone who attended had a rat story, even Adams himself, "I can't even tell you how many times I open my gate and there are uninvited guests," Adams said. "Anyone who knows me, knows I hate rats."
Now, rats are becoming more visible. Adams is alarmed at statistics from 311 calls, indicating that Brooklyn logged 7,253 rat complaints or sightings, compared with 4,507 for Manhattan during the same period.
