While Jack the Ripper was busy in London during the year 1891, New York City had its Ripper to contend with, or was it the real Jack the Ripper?

    The New York World is a defunct newspaper published in New York City from 1860 until 1931. The paper played a major role in the history of American newspapers. It was a leading national voice of the Democratic Party. From 1883 to 1911 under publisher Joseph Pulitzer, it became a pioneer in yellow journalism, capturing readers' attention and pushing its daily circulation to the one-million mark.
