Some never before-seen photos from 100 years ago tell vivid story of gritty New York City

This was advertised as “Never before-seen photos from 100 years ago tell vivid story of gritty New York City.” (Some may have been seen before). These were sent to me by a friend who was the USA Today editor. Almost a million images of New York and its municipal operations have been made public for the first time on the internet. Some have been seen before.
The city’s Department of Records officially announced the debut of the photo database. It was culled from the Municipal Archives collection of more than 2.2 million images going back to the mid-1800s, the 870,000 photographs feature all manner of city oversight — from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.
Note the fifth photo has dead bodies.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2134408/Never-seen-photos-100-years-ago-tell-vivid-story-gritty-New-York-City.html
