Nina In New York: Theres Probably Really A Snake In My Boot

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

A lighthearted look at news, events, culture and everyday life in New York. The opinions expressed are solely those of the writer. ______________

ByNina Pajak

There are certain inalienable truths in this world, under whose tenets I have operated my whole life.

1. Beer before liquor, never sicker. 2. Dont touch your face, itll make you break out. 3. Living in New York City means not having to worry about natural disasters like earthquakes (usually), tornadoes (mostly), scorpions (definitely), and snakes. 4. Two cookies at a time is an iron-clad serving size that no mere mortal may override.

Sure, we have rats and spiders and cockroaches for days, and crazy people who might spit on you and public defecation and bed bugs and sky high rents and pigeons and all manner of nasty blights, but short of escaped pets who took a wrong turn at the toilet bowl, were not too big on reptiles. Or so I thought.

Earlier this week, a snake that many rude, unsympathetic people have callously and offhandedly described as just a harmless, little one decided to slither into our place and hang out in the basement. I dont know if it heard that Ive been on a Gilmore Girls binge lately or if it just really likes the smell of old tax returns and gift wrap supplies, or if maybe it got the memo that Halloween is coming up and its time to scare the living crap out of an unsuspecting citizen. But there it was. And I promise you, there is no such thing as a little snake when its in your house.

Obviously, its time to move. If anyone knows of a decently sized two bedroom in a family-friendly neighborhood under an impenetrable dome which has been swept of snakes and other shocking intruders, please email me.

In the spirit of honesty, I wasnt in the house either. Thank God. Someone else was, and she texted me a photo and then called to swear a blue streak and yell at me for not being home and cry a little, and then we both decided she should somehow dash outside to call in some help from a construction crew working nearby without ever losing sight of our cold-blooded intruder. She succeeded, and two out of three of the guys willingly entered our apartment, where they did battle with the snake for an excruciating number of minutes. In the end, man remained at the top of the food chain and this poor, serpentine soul is in snake heaven now, if such a thing exists (and it isnt totally antithetical to their long-maligned existence).

If this upsets you, Im sorry. I really am. I do feel a little badly, in a way I wasnt expecting and have never felt before with other pest run-ins. I keep imagining the snake as an ancillary sidekick-type character in a Disney movie, cracking wise and sneaking through holes in walls to eavesdrop and keep the hero abreast of important, plot-driving details. What if it was on its way to finding its long lost parents from whom it was separated when emigrating from Russia to America? Or what if its best friend was a friendly, germaphobic rat, and they were on an adventure across New York to eat at every Zagat-starred vegetarian restaurant (dumpster)? These thoughts are plaguing me, and I fret that I will never find peace until Ive reconciled my true detestation for vermin with the confusing, emotionally-wrenching anthropomorphizing with which the Disney corporation has filled my head.

Then again, in most of those movies the snake is some hideously nightmarish incarnation of a psychotic, magical villain, or its a simpering lackey to an evil overlord. And furthermore, uuuugh. And eeeew. And eek! And bleah! Listen, Im an animal lover. But Im also a bug/rodent/creepazoid hater, and I feel strongly that if an icky-crawly of any kind invades my space, it must be destroyed. I think this is more than fair. Likewise, if I were out camping and a snake crawled into my tent or cabin or whatever campers sleep in, I would think, well, Im in snake territory and have no right to expect anything less, so lets respectfully get the eff out of here, whose stupid idea was it to go camping in the first place? But this is New York City! What in Gods name is a snake doing here at all, let alone in my home? Since when do they break and enter? Since when do they appear anywhere in urban environments other than within horrifying childrens books and Samuel L. Jackson movies? Whatever pact we had with them has been trampled, Im sure of it. Its all so, so wrong. How can I ever trust any law of nature again? If snakes are skulking around Queens all of a sudden, all bets are off.

Amid Ebola scare, New Yorkers on edge about subways

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Riders stand inside an L-Train subway car, Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, in New York.

New Yorkers like to talk about the health risks that come with riding rapid transit. Influenza, bed bugs, a nervous breakdown could all be a result of a daily commute in crowded subway cars.

But on Thursday, straphangers found themselves face-to-face with the fear of a new potential threat when Craig Spencer, a young doctor who recently returned from Guinea after volunteer work for Doctors Without Borders, tested positive for the Ebola virus. In the two days before he developed a fever and was hospitalized, the 33-year-old physician rode a number of subway trains on the 1, A and L lines. This has prompted many New Yorkers to fear they may be at risk for exposure.

Local and federal health officials took pains to address these concerns. Mary Bassett, health commissioner for New York City, said the probability was “close to nil” that Spencer’s subway rides would pose a risk for infection. Mayor Bill de Blasio even tweeted a photo of himself riding the subway on Friday.

Dr. Craig Spencer was self-monitoring for symptoms of Ebola after returning from West Africa last week. But some are questioning if more restrict…

Unlike a cold or flu bug, Ebola is not airborne, which means you won’t catch the virus by merely standing near a person who has it. Experts say the Ebola virus is only transmitted by touching the bodily fluids of a person who is showing symptoms of the disease.

“It’s the same exact conversation as the airplane conversation,” Dr. Michael Reilly, director of the Center for Disaster Medicine at New York Medical College, told CBS News. “Even if the person is symptomatic, unless you come in direct contact with their bodily fluids the risk for transmission is low.”

Reilly speculates most people are concerned with the possibility of catching the virus from someone who is coughing. Being extremely close to someone’s “wet, productive cough, it’s possible to be exposed to their respiratory droplets,” he said. However, a study published in 2007 that analyzed samples of variety of bodily fluids from Ebola patients did not find traces of the virus in sputum.

Reilly said most hypothetical scenarios for infection do not match up with common sense and are pretty implausible. For example, no one would actively touch blood or vomit while on the subway and then rub their eyes, mouth or nose. In any case, Spencer was not symptomatic at the time he rode the trains, so even that hypothetical risk doesn’t apply here.

Bed bugs invade New York City subways – The Morning Call

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

NEW YORK Three New York City subway trains had to be fumigated after riders and staff spotted bedbugs in the cars, a transit spokesman said on Wednesday.

The bedbugs were found on the N train, which links Brooklyn’s Coney Island with lower and midtown Manhattan and Astoria in Queens.

Two trains were taken out of service to be fumigated by exterminators on Sunday, and another on Tuesday, said Kevin Ortiz, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the state-controlled agency that runs the subway.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are also doing spot checks inside crew rooms,” Ortiz said. The fumigations were first reported in the New York Daily News.

The New York City subway is one of the busiest transit systems in the world. Humans make nearly 5.5 million trips on the system on an average weekday. Ortiz said he was not aware of previous reports of bedbugs on the subway.

Bedbugs can grow to the size of an apple seed and feed on human blood. They sometimes leave behind itchy bite marks, rashes and the gnawing anxiety caused by a possible infestation, a perennial fear in crowded cities.

New York's Carter Hotel, dubbed the 'dirtiest hotel in America' to sell for 107m

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Located in key position just off Times Square in New York Scooped ‘dirtiest hotel in America’ TripAdvisor award three times Used hospital sheets on beds and violated 15 building codes Room 608 was the site of a murder in 2007

By Travelmail Reporter

Published: 03:18 EST, 5 June 2014 | Updated: 03:28 EST, 5 June 2014

The Hotel Carter famously won TripAdvisor’s ‘dirtiest hotel in America’ award three times in a year, but now there are buyers bidding to snap up the New York accommodation with the price expected to reach $180million (107million).

The 600-room hotel, just off Times Square on West 43rd Street, has had bug infestations, was the site of a murder in 2007 and has violated 15 building codes from uncharged fire extinguishers and exit signs that don’t light up to lifts that were overdue for inspection.

Lawrence Wolfe, who has been handling the sale, told NBC News: ‘It’s the dirtiest, and best located hotel in New York City. It was under-managed and neglected.’

Key location: The Hotel Carter is expected to sell for 107million, despite its questionable reputation for cleanliness

In need of an upgrade: The bathrooms were pictured with stains and mould when the Hotel Carter won the ‘Dirtiest hotel in America’ title for the third time in 2009

First opened in the 1930s as the Hotel Dixie, it was famed as an affordable New York location, but in recent years the two-star accommodation had insect infestations, bed bugs and even used discarded hospital linens for its bedding.

In 2007, a woman in her 20s was found dead in room 608, with her head and legs wrapped in plastic bags. She had been strangled.

Bed bug cases in NYC drop to 4-year low

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

NEW YORK CITY (PIX11) Good news, New York. There are fewer bed bugs crawling in your sheets.

Infestations by the tiny brown critters have dropped every year for the past four years, according to new data from the housing department.

Brooklyn has the unsavory distinction of having the most bed bug violations since 2010, but all five boroughs have seen declines in confirmed bed bug cases, according to the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

Citywide, bedbug infestations were cut by nearly 53 percent from 4,808 in 2010 to 2,268 in 2013.

Housing officials credited the drop to legislation enacted in 2011 that required landlords to properly deal with infestations, and to better awareness citywide of the crawly critters.

As opposed to just a few years ago, people today are considerably more vigilant and there is more and better information available to the general public regarding how to prevent and deal with infestations, the city said in a statement releasing the new figures.

The numbers reflect confirmed infestations between fiscal year 2010 and fiscal year 2013, which ends in July.

The cases were reported in the housing departments jurisdiction, that is, homes that are being rented. The latest data does not include statistics for co-ops, condos, private homes, public housing, schools, offices, hospitals or any commercial spaces, including movie theaters.

Bed bugs are tiny insects, about the size of an apple seed, that are usually active at night. They live in cracks in furniture, floors and walls, and feed on blood.

Bed Bugs- how bad are they in Brooklyn? – New York City …

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

I used to think it was a good resource and from time to time check refer to it to check my area of Brooklyn. In my area, East Flatbush closer to Lefferts Prospect, there were so many reports of bed bugs with LLs practically doing nothing about them and too many shamed people saying not a thing. So you can imagine the bugs being rampant in the community.

The reason I say used to be a good resource since now if I go to the site the map that shows my area has been wiped clean of reports where it had many more reports. Last I checked it was less than 5 reports. You see this area is being gentrified so LLs can’t have bb’s being listed for potential renters now can they?

I had them too. In my building one floor has them really bad. Someone told me they’ve seen them in the halls. Management does next to nothing about it and doesn’t help to have a mentally unstable super that uses bed bugs as a weapon on renters, but how can you prove this?

I guess you can still refer to the site since there may not be any other like it.
