The Rat Information Portal (RIP) will show users how big of a rat problem their neighborhood has.

NEW YORK (PIX11) — No one likes to see a rat scurry across the subway tracks or rummaging through their garbage cans.

The New York City Department of Health has created the Rat Information Portal, an interactive map that will show users just how big of a problem the furry pests are on thier block.

The map shows inspections, active rat signs (tracks, droppings, etc.), failed inspections, cleanups and baitings.

Residents can search by borough, neighborhood, intersection or exact street address.
