Join us at the Swamp in the City where you can meet the cast of Swamp People, check out live alligators, sample free Cajun favorites such as Gumbo and Crawfish ?touff?e by renowned Cajun Chef John Folse, listen to live music from Sac Au Lait, and have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Louisiana, courtesy of LousianaTravel.com.

After 8:30pm every night, the lights are turned off to help the gators acclimate to NYC, as they require complete darkness. We expect the gators to start lying out on our heated rock as they feel more comfortable in their city swamp.
