Conde Nast staffers say that the rats have “taken over”

The rat plague at Conde Nast’s new One World Trade Center offices is only getting worse.

In November, Vogue staffers — including the magazine’s matriarch, Anna Wintour — said that they were avoiding their new offices due to a “rat infestation.” Now sources tell the New York Daily News that the rats have “taken over.”

“A bunch ate through the ceiling of a sports editor’s office and crawled all over his desk and left poops on his keyboard,” said a source. “They ate through his rug to fit under his door.”

In response, Conde has sent a memo to staffers in the building telling them that “they cannot eat at their desks.”

When asked if he was disgusted by the rat problem, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter said: “They’re rats! What do you think?” [NYDN] Christopher Cameron
