Rats have been a major problem in the NYC area for decades. The good news is that a Columbia University student recently calculated that the city has roughly two million of these rodents, which is six million less than previously thought. The bad news is that despite these lower numbers, there are still plenty of them around. In fact, some have been taking over certain properties, including an apartment building in Harlem.
The Harlem building is often called “rat city” due to the large numbers of rats that are seen in and around it. The rats gather around garbage bags and have lost any fear of people, making them even more difficult to scare off or get rid of. This problem has residents worried about their safety, since rat scratches and bites can spread infections. The droppings they leave behind can also cause serious health problems.
