Join us after the sun goes down and the city comes alive to learn about The Rise and Fall of the American Mafia.
Meets at the corner of Mulberry and Worth Streets
Saturday & Sunday at 11 a.m.
Learn about the earlier era of street gangs of NYC from the 1840s through the 1920s. Find out how these gangs went from small packs of immigrant thugs with tightly knit loyalties to an evolved, corporate style American syndicate. Mulberry Street, from Chinatown to Little Italy, is where most of the notorious gangsters in New York rose up. From the former Five Points, New York’s most notorious slum, to the narrow alleys of Chinatown’s “Bloody Angle”, learn about the ruthless tactics of the first Mafia bosses of New York and the proud efforts of NYPD Lieutenant Joe Petrosino against these thugs. Take a tour with NYC Gangster Tours to learn how organized crime was born on these streets!
