Kitty Genovese Crime Scene : News Photo

Kitty Genovese Crime Scene

View of an alleyway parallel to Austin Street (and intersecting with Lefferts Boulevard, visible at the far end of the picture), Kew Gardens, New York, New York, 1984. In 1964, a woman named Catherine Genovese (better known as Kitty) was murdered by Winston Moseley (who was later convicted for the crime), who attack her in several nearby locations, including in a small hallway behind the illuminated door at left. The case was sensationalized at the time due to the supposed indifference of witnesses thought to have seen the murder and done nothing to help Genovese or to call the police.
