Map of percentage of restaurants with Rat infestations in NYC. Screenshot from Gothamist
We have already shown you where to find the most rats in New York City and even the location of sculpted rats (they are at the Graybar Building at Grand Central), and now the most recent map we will share shows you the percentage of restaurants in each NYC neighborhood with rats.
A recent interactive map featured on the Gothamist created by Steven Melendez gives a breakdown of the percentage of restaurants with rats in each neighborhood in the city. They range from an area in Queens with 60% of restaurants cited for pest problems to 0% on Roosevelt Island. The data used for the map was collected from NYC Health Inspection Results, which you can use to check the cleanliness of your favorite restaurants.
