In this series titled New York City: Then and Now, photographer and historian Marc Hermann overlaps black and white crime scenes with the same exact locations as they exist today. He says, “My inspiration is drawn not from fictional characters, but rather from the real people who documented life in New York through the mid-20th century.”
To create each compilation, Hermann relied on Daily News Pix, a photo archive of the New York Daily News across the years. He pulled historic crime scenes of fires, plane crashes, gas explosions, suicides, and murders, and perfectly blended them with the colorful scenes of today. Each memorable moment will have New Yorkers thinking twice about the places in which they work, live, and reside.
