As Children’s Hospital disappears, are the rats appearing?

Children's Memorial Hospital demolition

No rats visible in this view of Children’s Memorial Hospital demolition, from atop the John Hancock Center.

Back in the spring, everyone (Crain’s, Trib, DNAInfo, to name a few) with access to a pen and paper wrote of the impending influx of rats in the Lincoln Park neighborhood once demolition of Children’s Memorial Hospital began.

Well, demolition is in full swing, and it occurs to me I haven’t heard anything at all about rats over the past couple months. So, to you, denizens of Lincoln Park, I ask: Are you seeing more rats, or signs of more rats, than you’d seen before demolition began?

This is what comment sections are for; sound off!

  1. Lincoln Park has always been one of Chicago’s most rat-infested neighborhoods. Think restaurants. Here’s an aerial overview of the Children’s Hospital demolition, shot on Monday afternoon.
