Attack of the Killer Bed-Stuy Rats

New, 1 comment

Some Bed-Stuy public housing tenants have figured out the best way for getting the New York City Housing Authority to make overdue repairs: call a press conference. After years of leaky pipes, stained ceilings, holes in walls and rats kidnapping and devouring pet birds, the NYCHA showed up the night before a tenants' press conference with a team of repairmen. An official said the timing was just a coincidence, but Chi-Chi the canary probably wishes that press conference was scheduled a bit earlier. [NYT]
