The Splendor of Brooklyn Contrasts

Kingsland Avenue Friends

One of the things we love about Brooklyn are the contrasts that it offers, particularly between the new luxe condo version and the old non-luxe edition. Our Greenpoint correspondent, who knows a good, absurd juxtaposition when she sees one, offers us this one from Kingsland Avenue, which is in a corner of Brooklyn east of the BQE and south of Newtown Creek that offers many compelling side-by-sides of Brooklyn Vieux and Brooklyn Nouveau. The two buildings in this shot are separated by an empty lot, which our correspondent notes is liberally baited for rats. Cool.

Seriously what is going on here? I'm in contract in the condo building to the left. Every day I walk past and see like 5-8 rats, one GIANT rat, as well as pigeons. As long as this guy keeps feeding the pigeons, the rats aren't going away. How can we stop him?
