What are These Creatures We are Seeing?by Chris Holly

Years ago my good friend told me her brother had a terrible experience while working in New York City. He was traumatized to the point he refused to return to the job or go back to the city at all for that matter. He lived on Long Island and until this event did work often in the city. He was a construction worker who specialized on renovation projects of old city buildings.
The event occurred while he was working on a very old building that still had the original freight elevator in use. The construction crew was using it to carry material to and from the buildings basement to the different floors they were working on. The basement of this building was deep and old. It bottomed out many floors below street level into the bowels of the workings of New York Cities underworld.
None of the work crew on this project liked this old iron gated ancient elevator or the old deep basement so many levels below the modern day street level. It was creepy and dank. It was the only place to store tools and materials needed for the renovation or the buildings floors they were bringing back to life above. A few times each day someone from the work crew would need to go into the desolate basement area to transfer whatever it was that they had stored there.
This one fateful day it was my friends brother who needed to take the old iron gate elevator down to gather a few tools he needed for the project he was working on in the building. He rode the slow elevator to the last level in the building and pulled open the old Iron Gate. He stepped out into the open space of the basement when he quickly caught some movement out of the corner of his eye over in the corner of the room. He moved a few feet closer to see what it was and stood frozen in horror at what stood looking back at him from the corner of the room.
There stood a creature about six feet tall with legs and arms in a human form but a head like a lizard or reptile. It had a snout and large mouth with fang like teeth and long slit thin red eyes. The thing was greenish grayish in color and did not wear any type of protection or clothing. It had a slight odor to it of a musky animal. It stood there simply looking as shocked at the sight of my friend’s brother as he was at seeing it.
My friends brother quickly backed into the elevator and with heart beating hard against his chest fought to get the Iron Gate closed while punching buttons till that old freight elevator started its climb back up in to the top floors of the building.
