The 34thStreet Precinct tweeted a picture of the reptile saying it was crossing NinthAvenue in Inwood.
The post initially stated the creature was an alligator, but Twitter came to the rescue to set the story straight.
.@lizzieohreally Oh, ok. Then it makes much more sense that he'd be on 9th. That's more of a crocodile hangout than an alligator spot...thx— NYPD 34th Precinct (@NYPD34Pct) July 23, 2015
The little crocodile that could was even caught between the Uber -- NYC crossfire.
.@yaelbt I heard he couldn't get a cab. And he wasn't thrilled with Uber either...— NYPD 34th Precinct (@NYPD34Pct) July 23, 2015
The NYPD captured Inwood’s communal pet at 205 th Street and handed it over to Animal Care & Control. Thankfully no injuries -- man or animal -- were reported.
