Mysterious green slime leaks from sewer manholes in New York: residents are at a loss
Fluorescent green liquid oozing from manholes in New York City has social media speculating that popular movies have turned into real life. What kind of liquid is this, Fox News found out.
Mysterious green “slime” leaking from manholes and sewer pipes in Manhattan’s World Trade Center area was captured on video by Daniel Pantelo. He posted it in his post on the X website, which caused a strong reaction.
The media compared what they saw to a scene from the movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and social media users put forward their own theories.

“Can anyone explain this, or are we just living in Gotham?” – Pantelo wrote, accompanying his message with a video showing green liquid flowing out of the hatch onto the street.
“I’m pretty sure it’s Surge,” one user commented, referring to the popular 1990s soda.
“Have you seen the turtles and the rat doing karate?” – wrote another user, referring to the movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.
However, a community notes clarification was later added to the message, which seemed to clarify: “slime” is actually “water with green dye.”
“Plumbers often use a harmless fluorescent green dye to detect leaks in city water and sewer systems,” it says.
However, Pantelo was not convinced by this information, and he preferred to rely on his “divine intuition.”
“Contrary to the community’s explanation, I believe that slime is radioactive goo. The source of such thoughts? Divine intuition,” he wrote in a follow-up message.
