Behold, the rats of the East Broadway F line subway station!
They are tough. They are bold. They don't give an F who you are. furtive around down on the tracks for them. This is their subway platform and you're just a guest.
I stood not 10 feet away from these two rats for a good five minutes. They barely budged. I stared at them. I moved towards them. I took pictures of them. (Obviously.) They did not flinch. They are the baddest rats I've even met in New York.
