Fifty Years After Kitty Genovese (digital postcard)

Fifty Years After Kitty Genovese (digital postcard)

Published by The Experiment
Five decades later, we’re still asking ourselves: “If I had been there, would Kitty have lived?”

Fifty years later, the name of murder victim Kitty Genovese still conjures the ugly spectre of American apathy. “37 Saw Murder but Didn’t Call Police” ran the Times headline that created a legend. A thirty-eighth witness did call—half an hour after the first attack. By then, the killer had returned and finished the job: Kitty lay dying, just steps from the safety of her own apartment.

The apparent indifference of Kitty’s neighbors to her screams—and the cold-blooded calm of the killer who came back—fixed this case in the memory of detective chief Albert Seedman. Ten years later, he gave coauthor Peter Hellman the inside scoop on the murder that haunts a quiet corner of Kew Gardens, Queens—and the American conscience.

Fifty Years After Kitty Genovese combines Seedman’s account with incisive new commentary from Hellman. The true story is as gripping today as ever, and the plight of Kitty Genovese as chilling.
