There's an alligator sitting on top of a New York City manhole in Union Square Park

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. There's an alligator sitting on top of a New York City manhole in the middle of Union Square Park. Don't worry, though; it's made of bronze. It's a sculpture by Swedish artist Alexander Klingspor, and it's an homage to the old legend that alligators roam the city's sewers - which they don't. Alligators are illegal to own in New York, but this one can sit in public aboveground until next summer. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
