Take the Little Italy/Chinatown Gangsters Walking Tour with Family or Friends at a date and time of your choice! Booking approved upon scheduling of a guide! From the 1840’s through 1920’s, learn about the earlier era of street gangs of NYC and about the evolution from small packs of immigrant thugs with tightly knit loyalties to an evolved, corporate style American  syndicate. Mulberry Street, from Chinatown to Little Italy, was the spot where the notorious gangsters in New York came up, from the former Five Points, New York’s most notorious slum, to the narrow alleys Chinatown’s  “Bloody Angle.” In Little Italy’s Historic District we learn the ruthless tactics of the first Mafia bosses of New York, the proud efforts of NYPD Liutenant Joe Petrosino‘s fight against these thugs. Organized Crime as we know it was born on these streets.
