About this Event:
New York City has long had a fascination with alligators in the sewer. The ‘legend’ has been referenced across popular culture from Thomas Pynchon to Sharknado 2. But, there’s also a bit of historical truth to this tall tale. New York City has been – and still could be! — home to an alligator or two in its vast sewer system.
Join author Thomas Hynes for a talk on alligators in New York City’s sewers, how the story grew to such mythic proportions, and how the legend has a bit of truth behind it.
