News that the City has asked for bids to provide pest control services at Brooklyn Bridge Park, along with reports by some local residents of having seen rats near the playground at Pier 6, has aroused some concern.
New York Post: Is there a rat problem at Brooklyn Bridge Park?
“Absolutely not,” said Regina Myer, president of the city development corporation overseeing the park’s construction, when asked today about the city recently soliciting bids from firms interested in providing pest management and exterminator services for the 85-acre project.
The Post quotes Myer as saying the city is being “pro-active”, seeking to avoid a problem ever arising.
Good news for Dodger and her or his family and friends: according to the article, “city officials say they have no desire to weed muskrats out.”
