When I came to New York, I had big dreams. I wanted to write, I wanted to engage with the fashion scene, I wanted to find a magically affordable apartment, and I wanted to spend the majority of my time eating classic New York City foods.
Little did I know that at the heart of it all, what I really wanted to do was be like Pizza Rat.
Watching him work is a true inspiration, and his dedication to his craft is a fine of example of the ambition and focus that drives New Yorkers to succeed. Pizza Rat is a hero amongst men. Pizza Rat is who we all came to this crazy city to become.
Aren't we all just a bunch of rats dragging slices of pizza down the stairs? #Pizzarat— Bill Beard (@writebeard) September 21, 2015

When I drag a slice of pizza down the subway stairs they call it "desperate and sad" but when #pizzarat does it they call it "viral"— Audrey Stanfield (@audstanfield) September 21, 2015
I'm looking forward to the book of life philosophy built around #PizzaRat— Sara Yasin (@missyasin) September 21, 2015
Dear #PizzaRat, It doesn't last. Enjoy it while you can. Sincerely, Arizona llama— Dan Primack (@danprimack) September 21, 2015
#PizzaRat isn't the hero we asked for, but he's the hero we need in these dark times.— Nick Kolakowski (@nkolakowski) September 21, 2015
Some exec right now is trudging through the NYC subway tunnels trying to find a rat to monetize #PizzaRat— Morgan Evans (@totallymorgan) September 21, 2015
Was anyone else sad when the rat ran away at the end? I was like oh no lil buddy you earned that pizza. #pizzarat— Allison Kilkenny (@allisonkilkenny) September 21, 2015
