NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Beware of the rats!
That’s the cry from New York City Councilwoman Jessica Lappin.
Lappin said that in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the rodents have been moving from the city’s shorelines into waterfront neighborhoods.
“This is a real public heath problem and it’s much worse since the storm. That’s what the stats, based on 311 calls, are showing us and so we need to tackle it,” Lappin told 1010 WINS’ Stan Brooks.
