Locals Say Park Across From Plaza Hotel Being Overrun By Rats

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Apparently even rats like fancy digs.

According to various reports, the plaza across from the swanky Plaza Hotel is being overrun by rats.

The Grand Army Plaza Park has apparently become a new hangout for the four-legged vermin as some locals can attest to.

“When I come in the morning around 6 o’clock, I have to get the spot. I see a lot of rats moving around the park,” one street vendor told 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa.

Some area regulars said a build-up of trash, less traps and feed for carriage horses in nearby Central Park didn’t help the situation.

“There’s always rats around here. They’re big rats too,” said another man.

Others, however, don’t see what everyone is clamoring about.

“I’m coming over here almost everyday. I don’t see rat in the area over here,” one man said.

    Mmm, rats are almost as good as rabbitt for eating. Let’s give the homeless some rifles so they can get some fresh meat in their diets.
