Crocodiles living in the sewer must be New York City’s quintessential urban legend. Stroll along the River in Bronx Park and you just might catch sight of its cold-blooded residents! It all began in 1927 with the first eye-witness accounts, but it was only in 1932 when sightings shot to fame. The New York Times reported on two small boys who stumbled upon a swarm of giant albino crocs on the banks of the River! Locals once kept baby crocodiles as exotic pets; but, when they outgrew their novelty and NYC’s teeny apartments, pet-owners would flush the reptiles down the toilet! The rest, as they say, is history.
