NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Neighbors and a local city councilman have called on the city to step up its efforts, as a park in Woodside, Queens remains overrun with rats.
As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported Wednesday night, John Vincent Daniels Jr. Square, at Roosevelt Avenue between 50th and 52nd streets in Queens, should be a tranquil place. Instead, there’s a rat race going on — in the most literal sense.
CBS 2 spotted some kids watching the rats running around the park. Their mother decided to stand far away.
“I use to play with my kids here, but now not, because it’s too scary; I mean, dangerous,” Delia Tenazake said.
