A bizarre looking crustacean appeared in Central Park on Wednesday morning. The creature was spotted by The Pool around 103rd Street close to Central Park West, and can be seen in the video below, taken by @erutisworks.
We’ve reached out to the Central Park Conservancy to see if they can tell us what this thing is, and why it’s in the park. And if anyone reading this thinks they have an answer, please leave it in the comments!
Update: the commenters were right. The Conservancy confirmed this was indeed a crayfish. A representative told us they can be found at both The Pool and The Loch.Get the Upper West Side newsletter:
