Eric Adams says he wants to kill rats, even in his infested home

Mayor Eric Adams once again condemned the mob of rodents that ruled the city’s streets — as he defended that he had failed to fight an infestation so close to his home that he was literally inside his Brooklyn building and at a high rate resulted in a fine.

“Upper East Side, Upper West Side, rats are everywhere,” Adams told reporters when asked if the rat tsar’s town hall, who is seeking employment, could visit his four-building brownstone in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

“I hate rats as you know, I’m scared of them and when I see one I think about it all day. So I’m fixated on killing rats.”

Adams made the comments just a day after he called a city administrative court to defend his management of the Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone after the Department of Health hit the Lafayette Avenue address with a subpoena for rodent infestation.

The city inspector found “fresh rat droppings” near the building’s meters and a stairwell during a May 10 inspection, sufficient evidence of “active rat signs.”

Adams has been after rats since he began his tenure as mayor.

So far, City Hall has launched a pilot program in Times Square and Brooklyn Heights to experiment with trash cans that hold trash bags that would otherwise be left on the street; announced an overhaul of the pickup schedule to reduce the time garbage bags spend on the street; and said it plans to hire a new “tsar” to coordinate the agency’s efforts to combat the infestation.
