Just because some rats might give the mayor 'the middle claw', does that mean he shouldn't try.....?

In Washington Heights every trash can is over flowing. Also every can is picked through by can collectors so the people are a total mess too, not just the rodents. The people (probably from the disgusting restaurants here), like to throw rice and food all over the ground for the pigeons which is totally stupid. People also like leaving piles of rice on window sills I guess for pigeons and mice. Some people are so lazy they just throw their garbage out of their windows of the buildings so it sticks to other peoples AC units, and nobody cleans it up so its there for years.

Honestly rats are cleaner then most people in the heights.

Let some cats loose. Watch the rats disappear.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the vast majority of the $32 million is going to be stolen via bull**** city contracts.

I'll tell you something....I moved to an area in Brooklyn that borders 3 areas (Bensonhurst/Bath Beach/Gravesend) and the first thing I noticed when I moved in was, Holy S**t, there are A LOT of cats in this area!! But I don't care because I have not seen 1 rat ever for the past 2+ years living here!

Mayor "rat" should be the first one to rid of imo.

$32 million = nothing verses the real rat population as imo it would take many years just to get the numbers under control.

In terms of rats? You don't have to believe me, but I don't have a rat problem in my area. At least not as bad as Manhattan anyway. I can count the times on one hand I've seen a rat in these streets in my whole life. Manhattan I see them every day. What do I know, I just live here. You're the expert on my neighborhood.

Point is just because you don't live in Manhattan doesn't mean you're free of rats. Just ask the people in the Bronx along the Concourse. Am sure they are some around, especially with PJ's nearby. The way the staff leaves garbage all out on the street and sidewalk... Would be *shocked* if they didn't draw rats. All it takes is high density and poor garbage disposal... Not something your neighborhood is so immune to, but what do I know? I guess your neighborhood is a special case because the streets are oh so clean. You even admit to living across the street from PJ's and we both know how people from PJs are said to throw their trash out of the window, etc.

Yeah but not living in certain areas of the city minimizes my chances of seeing them. There are certain areas of the city that the Health Department has deemed "rat reservoirs." Queens is the only borough that does not have one. Obviously some neighborhoods are more problematic than others. At least I can admit to where I live, you can't even disclose that on the board. Why do you even bother posting sometimes, I don't know. Most of what you speak about is crap you read about on the Internet. You don't hang in the PJs, you don't know anybody that lives there so you don't visit any PJs, but you know oh so much. Go feed your crap to somebody else that's hungry. Unless you want to disclose your source of credibility, don't bother posting about it. I back up what I speak about and you can't. Tribeca where I work is one of the most expensive neighborhoods to live in in the city, but its actually a rat reservoir. Oh the irony. No public housing in Tribeca last I checked. I'm in Tribeca every weekday too so let's see how much you want to discount me on that. Everything I speak about on this board, I actually know from experience. Go read Village Voice or something.
