Legendary Fifth Avenue toy store FAO Schwarz is infested with mice. "The Daily News spotted the city mice on Saturday and Sunday nights, scampering between the eyes of plush monkeys and elephants - and around nearby candy jars...'There definitely isn't [an infestation], not by any means that we know of,' said the store manager, William Butler. 'It is not an issue whatsoever in the store.' He said an exterminator would check for mice this morning." [NY Daily News]
