Title
Kitty Genovese Crime Scene
Description
(The crime scene was actually on the back of the building shown in Street View.) Catherine Susan "Kitty" Genovese (July 7, 1935 – March 13, 1964), was a New York City woman who was stabbed to death near her home in the Kew Gardens section of Queens, New York, on March 13, 1964. The circumstances of her murder and the lack of reaction of numerous neighbors were reported by a newspaper article published two weeks later; the common portrayal of neighbors being fully aware but completely nonresponsive has since been criticized as inaccurate. Nonetheless, it prompted investigation into the social psychological phenomenon that has become known as the bystander effect or "Genovese syndrome" and especially diffusion of responsibility.
