City Seals Off Section Of Rat Zoo

Collect Pond Park, sitting between Centre Street and Lafayette Street across the street from the New York Criminal Court in Manhattan, is still a haven for rats. But the city has sealed off some broken sidewalk that lies adjacent, preventing the rats from gathering in one of their favorite spots. Now to tackle the 98 other tunnels throughout the park, and the other patch of broken sidewalk a few feet away, near where this photo was taken.

Here's video highlighting the Rat Zoo in Collect Pond Park, filmed last summer at the very spot seen in the photo above.
