“The Rise and Fall of the American Mafia” Tour

2 hour walking tour

 Meets at Lanza’s Restaurant: 168 1st ave near E10th st.

Join us after the sun goes down and the city comes alive to learn about The Rise and Fall of the American Mafia. This tour focuses mostly on the 20th century arc of Organized Crime in America, specifically anchored by the Five Families of New York. A secret society that began in the 1900’s, expanded massively in the 1920’s, got organized and flourished from the 30’s through the 50’s and experienced a slow and ugly decline through the last decades of the century. This premium tour goes from the East Village down to Little Italy and tells the tale of Lucky Luciano’s ruthless rise to power, his affiliation with other notorious criminals such as Carlo Gambino, Vito Genovese and Meyer Lansky. The tour stops outside the tenements, cafés, restaurants, social clubs, funeral homes and even alleyways where it all happened, in an epic tale that spans 100 years and across the Atlantic and back while never leaving the vibrant streets of New York

Jewish Gangsters of the Lower East Side Tour

2 hour walking tour

Meets at the corner of Canal & Forsyth streets in Chinatown


Otherwise known as the “Kosher Nostra,” two generations of Jewish Gangsters introduced loan sharking, large-scale gambling and contract killing to the world of Organized Crime. In the cramped tenements of the Lower East Side, they swore that they would never suffer and flee like their forefathers did.

Admire the faded glory of what was once one of the largest Jewish communities in the world through its the delis, synagogues and food shops shops all while hearing the stories of wiseguys with colorful and notorious names like Meyer Lansky, “Red” Levine, “Bugsy” Siegel and “Gurrah” Shapiro. This was where the Greatest Jewish Gangsters in America got in, got rich, and got out.
