Atlantic Yards RATS!
I would assume that there are many more rats, and rodents on the planet than humans. Of course a major construction project will not only displace rodents, but insects, people, traffic, as well as businesses.
If our elected politicians, investors, contractors, and business leaders approve development why would anyone not expect such consequences?
Those listed above have no interest in the public, lest the public's opinion has a direct effect on the advancement of their careers.
I'm positive that the rat migration will settle, and without any help from those mentioned above.
Who should I blame for the massive invasion of Japanese Knot Weed in my backyard? My yard is completely engulfed by the bamboo like weed, and it can be considered as hazardous waste.
My point is that unfortunately the burden is always on the people, and at some point it pays off to be realistic and simply take the ultimate stand by not only voicing complaints but seeking out resolutions and sharing them.
