The parking lot for the Kew Gardens station became infamous for the location of the Kitty Genovese incident, where a young woman was assaulted and murdered in a populated neighborhood.

The incident became a rallying cry against social apathy, and articles were written about the "38 witnesses who did nothing." Details of the case do not support this scenario, but the case still motivates. It is referenced several times in the HBO documentary on real-life superheroes called Superheroes.
