What You See in Sunset Park: Alligator Hands


It's obscene, really. And it certainly isn't something you expect to see on the sidewalk. At least I don't expect to see it, but I did. They look strangely human, but that's the vegetarian in me talking, I'm sure. For $3.99 a pound you can take a claw from an alligator home with you.

That's pretty extreme. I have seen a lot of unusual food stuff in Chinatown, but never anything like this!

I was told that alligator meat helps with soothing coughs.

Holy Cow. I mean 'gator.

I have eaten crocodile (tail),once, in South Africa. But I think I may have lost my coffee if I'd seen this.

We got a menu under our door the other day that proudly featured just about anything you can imagine from duck feet, to stir fried loofas, to pork stomach - no alligator hands though. I think I'd have flown right off the sidewalk if I'd seen those!

Life in Chinatown is interesting to say the least.

What's WRONG with you people!?!? Those bad boys just scream backyard barbeque. Where on 8th ave did you find them?
