New York officials had a ceremony at City Hall marking Alligators in Sewers Day, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the popular legend.

The officials made the declaration Tuesday on the steps of City Hall to commemorate the 75th anniversary of an alleged sewer gator discovery by 16-year-old Salvatore Condulucci in the Manhattan borough’s East 123rd Street, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

Legend holds the alligators made the sewers home after vacationers returned to New York with baby reptiles as pets but released the creatures when they became too large.
