A Small Victory Over Rats


A day after Good Old Lower East Side hosted a public workshop on combating rats (flyer at left), The Villager reports that Chad Marlow, the founder of the Tompkins Square Park and Playgrounds Parents Association, has declared victory in the fight against the rats in the park. He says, “Hopefully, the time where rats would run over your foot is passed” – in Tompkins, anyway: Bowery Boogie notices that gardeners at the Children’s Magical Garden de Carmen Rubio are working with Lower East Side restaurants to combat rats inside of their community garden.
