I think most of NYC has a rat problem. This past summer there was a short documentary I watched about what's underneath the NYC streets and they were full of groundhog sized rats just breeding and breeding. As the temperature drops, I imagine they start trying to get warm by coming out of the underground and heading into buildings.

But having them in a brand new building ... and on the 26th and 27th floors of that building ... that seems like a colossal screw up.

Security couldn't even stop base jumpers from entering the building and leaping from the top. You think they could stop some rats?

Somebody in the comments on that article said "Rats probably wouldn't want to live on the 25th and 26th floors of a high rise. It's possible that they have mice and freaked out Conde Nasties are confusing their rodents"

Sounds like a few people there need to bring their cats in!

Not exactly new news, but...

One World Trade Center is Now the World's Third Tallest Building

http://ctbuh.org/News/GlobalTallNews...S/Default.aspx

Quote:
NEW YORK CITY – The 541-meter (1,776-foot) One World Trade Center has now become the world’s third-tallest building, according to the height criteria set by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). One World Trade Center now ranks only behind the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE (828 meters) and the Makkah Royal Clock Tower in Mecca, Saudi Arabia (601 meters) in the tallest building stakes. The office building at the center of the massive rebuilt World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York, opened its doors Nov. 3 to an anchor tenant, media company Condé Nast.

When you think about it, those vents are located on the side which will face 2WTC. So it is actually not that bad at all, considering they will be blocked

Yeah, at first I thought the giant coloured spray paint looking one was a bit strange, but now that they are adding to it, it constraints amazingly well and adds a lot of beauty, brightness, contrast and definition to the area.

SSC users were quoted in the Post, strangely enough.

Busybodies in a chatroom on the Web site SkyscraperCity.com delighted in the vermin problem that has brought a highbrow publication to a new low.

“Security couldn’t even stop BASE jumpers from *entering the building and leaping from the top. You think they could stop some rats?” a commenter named “4npower” wrote.

Another commenter, “Lady*Amanita,” speculated that the scourge is overblown.

“Rats probably wouldn’t want to live on the 25th and 26th floors of a high-rise,” she wrote, adding, “It’s possible that they have mice and freaked-out Condé Nasties are confusing their rodents.”
