I dunno, but clearly these trash cans costing seven large aren't doing the trick.

See, the City has lots of ways to gather trash but no planned way to GET RID of it. Same for the MTA.
Trash must be REMOVED or it builds up...First lesson in Trash 101 class.

This what I see the more you eat in the street and don't put trash in the garbage can , we are feeding the rats, and when we eat in the train station and put food in tracks we are feeding the rats, this has to stop ! Do you know how it feels to have four rats on the platform , its scary.

That next phase many never happen.

Spend half that amount on erratication, and the other half on a campaign for littering literacy in NY elementary schools. Just explain and teach at a young age what half the parents fail to and it will have an real effect down the line.

Pretty nasty, but IMO seems to me like these people had escargot in Hawaii. The most likely way to contract the rat lungworm disease is to eat snails, otherwise a rat would have to literally sh|t on your food

Am thinking I recall hearing that the funding was already given for that expansion.

The Federal Transit Administration has granted the MTA permission to begin "project development" work on phase two of the 2nd Avenue Subway.

A far cry from "being funded."

Let me correct that! The park along Westchester Avenue and White Plains Road had crazy rats at night. However, I have not seen many recently! Overall, the neighborhood is pretty fine!

*LOL* If walking near Hugh Grant Circle, can see parts where garbage is plenty for the rats. Some even throw their wrappers or whatever on the ground. Few garbage cans so become too lazy to hold on to it until one becomes available, and so it goes.
