New York City is full of possibilities. From entertainment to technology or arts, you can find everything, every experience, and every kind of lifestyle that you are finding here. Busy, amazing, chic and motivating, New York hides also dark secrets. Some of them, maybe the creepiest, are underneath its streets and buildings, just under your feet! Next time, before venturing into NYC subway, tunnels or cellars, think about the following urban legends, because every legend has a part of truth.
Are there really groups of modern Morlocks under NYC? Stories about Mole People living in NYC Subway are really old. In 2000, the movie Dark Days chronicled the lives of a group of people living in the Freedom Tunnel. But the urban legends of mole people go beyond tiny collectives of beggars looking for some shelter in the warm tunnels. They speak about powerful and criminal organizations, functioning in the darkness, hidden from view, and manipulating us from the city ancient subway lines. Have you ever heard about people who disappear mysteriously? Do you believe in Mole People? Tell us your opinion now!
And how about rumors of gigantic mutant rats of three feet or larger? It’s said that entire colonies exist down in the inky depths of the sewer system, and they can attack you, especially in the subway, where some people took and even published strange and horrible photos of them. What do you think? Still worse: if you live in a murky neighborhood, you can wake up one night to find one scuttling across your apartment at night. You don’t need to invite them. They are really silent and secretive… Urban legends or realities? What do you think?
No other city on Earth as New York City has an urban legend quite as persistent as that of the alligators (sometimes, mutant alligators) living below NYC. Thus, the alligators roam the city’s sewer system, surviving off rats and waste. The problem is that every now and then, one inform appears that makes you question whether this really is an urban legend.
For example, what do you think of this post in Time by Steven James Snyder “Freak Alligator Rises From NYC Sewers, May Have Been Picking Up Chinese Takeout.”
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you.
