New Yorkers, not sure if there is a rodent problem in your building? Check out the Rat Information Portal (aptly abbreviated to RIP) created by NYC’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Rats rarely exist on a single property. Getting rid of them requires a community effort.
RIP is a web-based mapping application where users can view rat inspection data. Findings from the Health Department’s inspections are searchable by address, or by borough, block and lot (BBL). You can use the map tools to find information about properties on the map.
