The Lively Morgue

"July 21, 1993. “Where Sharks Face Off With Gentler Souls,” read the headline on an article published that month about the New York Aquarium in Coney Island. “This is a bargain for those in search of the deeper perspective,” wrote the reporter, who traveled there with his son. Or maybe just a scare: “If you were to mix one drop of blood with a hundred million drops of salt water,” he noted, “a shark could detect that drop of blood as far as a quarter mile away.”"

^ Above an example post from the New York Times' first Tumblr blog, The Lively Morgue, "A Treasure House of Photographs" that got cut on the news floor.
