I chose to take pictures from around my neighborhood. I live in the bronx. Theres a lot of garbage cans around my block and there was a stack of garbage outside but im pretty sure the super did that because the garbage is being picked up tomorrow. the garbage cans seem to be full because theres a lot of food places around my area – i have pictures that show burgerking, popeyes, wendys and sam’s deli. Although there was a lot of garbage, i did not see any rodents what so ever. but, in the night time around the garbage pile you can hear rats walking around and i believe its because of the smell of food in the garbage. it does not concern me as much though because the rats are only around when the garbage is outside at night, which of course the garbage collectors come and get in the morning. i can’t really compare this to the first article we read because there was never any concern or rat issue in my neighborhood.
