30,000 Old Photos Released By The City's Department Of Records

The New York City Department of Records and Information Services (aw, DORIS) has announced the addition of 30,000 photographs to its online gallery. The latest photo dump includes images from the NYPD's "Alien Squad," car accidents, airplane crashes in Park Slope, the Hindenburg crashing, the demolition of the 2nd Avenue El train, explosions... you know, fun stuff. Here's a sampling for now, and we'll be revisiting more specified areas of their archives in the future.

This latest addition will join the nearly one million photos already in their online collection... many of which are pretty grisly.
