Murder on the roof. Auguest 13th, 1941. ~~>

via NYT Lens - Weegee’s Killer Decade

On the lineup platform at the police headquarters. Circa 1936.

Steps away from the sanitized, commercialized and pacified Times Square is a portal to a sinister urban past, where two-bit hoods lay sprawled in pools of blood with stogies clenched in their lifeless jaws, watched over by the police and the curious alike. It’s a world of men with guns and hats who played their final hands under elevated tracks and tenements that have long since vanished.
