My wife and I signed up for and participated in the Walking Mob Tour and was met by Robin London, a native New Yorker, who greeted us and 6 others at a predetermined location in Little Italy. Robin spoke about some of the pertinent history of the New York mafia and proceeded to show us around the area. We walked down Mulberry St which was a haven of crime and murder back in the day and the site of Gotti's Ravenite Club which is now a shoe store. We walked through Little Italy and Chinatown and we appreciated Robin's knowledge of the area and her intellect of Organized New York Crime. We ended in Five Points which is mentioned in Gangs of New York. Later, my wife and I and a young man from Ireland, ate at DaGennaio, previously Umberto's Clam House, which is where Joey Gallo was gunned down. Robin appreciated some of our's knowledge on Organized Crime which made it more enjoyable for everyone but even if a novice to the history of the Mafia, if interested in this topic, it is worth participating for 2-3 hours in this tour. Robin is informative, loves this topic, and is fun to talk to about not only the mob but the area. One can stop and get a drink or hit a bathroom without interrupting the tour and it is all informal but also very interesting thanks to Robin's knowledge. One gets a flavor of the area and we highly recommend this tour!
