Bedbugs have been discovered at One Time Warner Center, the Manhattan offices of Time Warner in Columbus Square, and at the headquarters of the Brooklyn district attorney, at 350 Jay Street, the Wall Street Journal reported. The bugs were found last week and were to be exterminated by today. This latest outbreak follows a summer-long bedbug infestation around the city, including at the Hollister store in Soho, Abercrombie & Fitch at the South Street Seaport, a triage room at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn and at a Victoria’s Secret on the East Side. In the past, the critters have been found in such offices as the Department of Health, the Human Resources Administration and at the City University of New York’s John Jay College, but the government is “usually pretty fast” to resolve the problem, said Council member Gale Brewer, who represents the Upper West Side. Brewer has asked the city to look at other prevention efforts in the battle against the bugs, including buying bug-sniffing dogs. [WSJ]
