Sure it may be the holiday season and time for cheer, but this week’s Heights Lowdown in the Brooklyn Paper takes a stab at our neighborhood’s rats:
Brooklyn Paper: Brooklyn’s Rat…: “The rats are getting more brave every year,” said Javier Quintana, a nine-year resident. “I’ve seen some the size of small dogs cruising down the Promenade. But now they’re emerging before dusk. When they’re hungry, they’re hungry.”
The Brooklyn Heights rats are currently living large. While the city should install bigger, more enclosed trash cans, residents and visitors alike need to do all they can to deny these midnight marauders of a food source.
