    Brooklyn Bedbugs Invade Marty Markowitz’s Building It’s not news that bedbugs are resurgent in New York, infesting all sorts of apartments in all parts of the city. But now we know the little critters might be heading for our leaders: Several residents of Marty Markowitz’s Prospect Park West apartment house confirm that the borough president’s building has an outbreak of the bugs. One resident spotted her own infestation two years ago and hired an exterminator; two months ago, another fled her apartment because of the bugs. Flyers appeared in the building last month carrying pictures of the tiny culprits and reminding residents of scheduled exterminator visits on the first Saturday of each month. Markowitz’s spokeswoman says the beep’s apartment has so far been spared. But he’s still being safe. “I’m going to go along with my building’s plans to fumigate to prevent my unit and others from getting them,” he told us via the rep. Good luck, Marty. The borough is counting on you. —Eric V. Copage
