Well I’ll be, New Yorker are celebrating the 75th anniversary of alligators in sewers. It was 75 years ago today that the New York Times printed a story about 16 year old Salvatore Condulucci who allegedly discovered a 8-foot, 125-pound gator in a Manhattan sewer on East 123rd Street . Yes, ever since the story circulated the urban legend has spiraled out of control. Many people still believe that below the streets of New York in the bowels of the bacteria-laden sewer system live families of discarded pet alligators. Hmm, more like discarded mobsters , drug dealers and Hoffa.
