NEW YORK, July 21 (UPI) -- A New York woman's apartment was No. 4 on a contest to find the nation's "dirtiest apartment" with rotten food and dead varmints littering the abode, she said.

Lisa Henderson's apartment in the Crown Heights neighborhood of the city's Brooklyn borough currently stands at No. 4 in the online poll but she said she is hoping the piles of dirty clothes, rotten food in the kitchen and dead mice that spent days beneath her refrigerator will push her over the top in the contest, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.


Henderson, 29, said she is just too busy for cleanliness.

"I work and go to school and play a lot of sports, and I'm really busy," she said. "I usually go in and change my clothes and go right back out."

"I'm out for bragging rights," she said of entering the online contest. "It must mean I'm really special."

However, her apartment is still several hundred votes behind a filthy apartment in Baltimore.

Voting in the online contest ends July 24.
