Instead of dealing with skyrocketing crime, and rat infestations, DeBlasio is busy painting Black Lies Matter in front of Trump Tower. I hope he gets attacked by rats.

The garbage left in the nearby park attracting the rats was undoubtedly left by “protesters” and the fact that a lot of the public trash cans were probably stolen to break store windows.

I have a hard time understanding why anyone would want to operate a business or live in NYC. There have to be economic considerations such as they can’t afford to move or they don’t have alternative income opportunities elsewhere. It must be like being in Jail to live there.

Once people fled in February they realized there are better places and options. I’ve heard leaving NYC was the bright side of the Virus shutdown.
