Excise license for 13 Catherine Slip...directly across the street from the Hotel.

The Hotel couldn't get a license for its numerous violations.

The name to whom this was issued is Michael but I can't figure out the surname.

According to the New York source I used, the house on the far right is 41 Oliver.
I believe the house behind the car with the overhang is 49 Oliver, which was Mary Harrington's place in April 1891.

Better shot in the photo at bottom....with the window at the base of the building....all from the early 1940's or late 1930's.

Edwin Borchard, author of the 1932 book, Convicting The Innocent.

His article on the presumed innocence of Ameer Ben Ali, based on his 1902 release, may not have been true.
A case where he was definitely wrong :
In 1911, seven year old Annie Lemberger was killed in Madison Wisconsin. This became the second most written of child homicide in 20th century America. Only the Lindbergh kidnapping generated more interest.

Annie was either killed by her father in a drunken rage or by her neighbor John A, (Dogskin) Johnson, a **** and all round ne'er do well. Mr. Johnson was convicted but released after ten years when the blame was shifted to her father.

Johnson was among Edwin Borchard's original innocents but 80 years later his guilt was proven definitively in a book called "Crime of Magnitude."

After correspondence with the on going Innocence Project, they agreed to strike Mr. Johnson's name from the innocent.

The Hotel Metropole....147 West 43rd Street

Emile Sultan, who served as an interpreter in the case, worked here as a cigar vendor.  Actor William Thompson heard the details said to have been shared by Ali with Sultan regarding
Ali going into Room 31 but only to burgle or rummage through the death room and shared them with a Buffalo newspaper in 1902.  No other newspaper contained the story.

Screen shot of a scrapbook which was shown within the 2013 Mysteries At The Museum program, Jack The Ripper In New York.

It isn't an official dossier but just a scrapbook which I believe was once in the possession of a prosecution attorney.  Site member Bob Anderson is featured on that program.

The fellow who shared this ink originally listed the NY Sun along with the other three outfits, but the NY Sun was on Nassau Street.
