The bedbugs that have already claimed Hollister, Elle, and the Brooklyn D.A. office as their victims have now made their way over to the Empire State Building, the city's most iconic 85 stories. While the vermin merely attacked the furniture inside the building's basement employee changing room, it is the implications of this recent infestation that are chilling: If the bedbugs are all over the Empire State Building, certainly they'd think nothing of any ol' walk-up throughout town. Perhaps even your own bed! [NYDN]
