Here is Why 2020 Broadway and 143 West 69 Street are Rat Infested: Open Food Crates for Restaurants
This speaks for itself.
Alley in between 143 West 69th Street and 2020 Broadway has become a receiving area for the three restaurants; namley Noi Due located at 143 West 69 Street, West Side Restaurant located at 2020 Broadway, and Barcibo Enoteca located at 2020 Broadway.
Rats pushed this out of one of the restaurants and had a feast.

the old pipes, and the food by the door. Two rats ran out of the potato bags
