If you enjoyed the Weegee exhibit at the International Center for Photography you’ll probably like gawking at these grisly (and we MEAN grisly: some are 100% NSFWcrime scene photos that we found in the city’s municipal archives.

Most of the pictures in the archive have little backstory, and the captions have been reprinted verbatim. One constant in many of these pictures is the police tripod that gets the overhead shots. Don’t you just miss the days when most people seemed to get murdered in bed? If this is all too much for you, check out these old photos of places people used to eat at—if you haven’t spoiled your appetite.

    1. So different then what we see in movies. Reality is always more …”gripping” than fiction… My daughter found her uncle who had hung himself. I can hardly imagine the visions she has to go through in her sleep and even while she is awake. Poor little thing.. If only I would have gotten there first…
