Northside Piers Site: Rat-Infested
The union rats - to date, a rare site along the Northside Williamsburg waterfront - were out in force this morning at the Northside Piers construction site. About a half-dozen of the giant critters lined both sides of the project's Kent Avenue frontage between North 3rd and North 4th Streets. A handful of picketers were present
We were on a mission to the Navy Yard Auto Pound (another post, perhaps) and didn't have time to investigate the exact grievance, but use of non-union labor at the site is a safe bet anytime the rats are around.
