Rats scurry through food at Dunkin' Donuts in Manhattan (VIDEO)

Here's proof that the rat race is truly alive and kicking in New York City.

Shocking footage has emerged that apparently shows vermin creeping and crawling all over food at a since shuttered popular Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts store about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

A 52-year-old Bronx resident, who asked to be identified as Pjayone, recorded the clips with his cellphone camera.

They show rats crawling up window curtains, scurrying over a display rack and through open food containers.

Pjayone says that the videos he shot at this 37th St. and 8th Ave. location compelled his friends to rechristen the Garment District as the "Varmint District."

"I work all over the city," he told the Daily News. "It's usually a common place thing that I see all around."
