The statue in which an alligator is seen emerging from a manhole cover is related to the urban legend that alligators live in New York’s sewers.
This sculpture is one of sculptures located at the 14th Street Subway Station and Eighth Avenue in New York. Sculptures called "Life Underground", and were made by the sculptor Tom Otterness in 2001.

The manhole cover from which the alligator emerges is typical of New York City manhole covers, for example Click for the item in The ultimate manhole covers site.
