Dear Resident, we, as well as you, have noticed an increase in the rat population of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. While we are currently dealing with the human kind, I must tell the residents of this outstanding community that the rat increase is a product of a purposeful attempt by our crack Public Safety Department (which never sleeps and has a thousand eyes continually upon you via our award-winning cameras) to make sure that rats multiply in this community and are considered part of its infrastructure. Rats, after all, are our friends and should be considered as such. Surprisingly, we already have negative missives about the other rodents--squirrels--which are simply funny little things with cute bushy tails. The rats that we are harboring admittedly do not have such bushy tails, but they are part of the squirrel family and should be considered as such.
Please, not only keep the pizza boxes in display at our Oval and other places of eatery (frankly the entire complex), but increase their display and other discarded food items. Let the rats benefit and grow.
I ask this not only as the representative of Blackstoned, but as someone who lives in this community and considers you his friend.
