Giant Dead-Rat Bouquet Adorns Lower East Side Scaffolding

It’s late summer in New York City, and the giant dead rats are in full bloom. And, as noted by a Bowery Boogie tipster, some person was thoughtful enough to collect a few particularly impressive specimens into a bouquet for everyone passing by the Lower East Side’s Baruch Houses — and now, this blog — to enjoy. Such a display certainly isn’t something you see every day, but you can now look for it in your mind each time you go to sleep for (at least) the next few months.
