Tompkins Square Park Rats Play Near Children (VIDEO)
Yesterday, Runnin' Scared wrote about an audit that details not so child-safe conditions at some City playgrounds -- including rats.
This vid, sent to Runnin' Scared by a staffer at the Comptroller's Office (which conducted the audit), demonstrates what appears to be an infestation at Tompkins Square Park -- note the active ratholes located just steps away from where children play.
(FYI: The audio commentary is from onlookers, not City investigators.)
Also, Runnin' Scared has heard unconfirmed reports that rodent-related chaos ensued this morning on the L-train near Sixth Avenue, after a rat allegedly got on a packed car. Anyone know anything about this? If so, let us know. (Especially if you have video.)
