Feasting Rats Swarm Upper Orchard Street [VIDEO]
Down at the north entrance of Orchard Street, rats roam free, stirred into a frenzy thanks in large part to the construction of Ben Shaoul’s new condo development at the corner of East Houston.
The vermin are displaced and eager to feast.
“Swarms of rats are coming out of the construction site,” a concerned longtime neighbor intimated along with the video below.
The years of speculation and construction have really hurt this once-vibrant block of the Lower East Side. Small businesses like Georgia’s BBQ struggle because of this perpetual state of redevelopment.
