Would you believe the story that alligators were actually found in the New York City Sewers? Well, believe it or not, it is true, as the New York Times published in the early 1930s. Back then, alligators were more than just an urban legend, or an urban myth.

Alligators really lived in the New York City Sewers.

This documentary takes a look at the sewer alligator stories that date back to the late 1920s and early 1930s. They might be a contemporary legend, but they are based on real sights of alligators. The documentary also explains how the alligators got to the New York City sewer system.

One of the stories is that alligators got to NYC thanks to rich people from New York. These Rich people brought the beasts from Miami, Florida. They bought some little alligators as part of poor buying decisions while on holiday.

Once the owners found out how hungry and dangerous their pets can become, they flushed them down the toilet. And this is one of the most widely accepted explanation of how alligators got into the New York City sewer system.
