    The Rise and Fall of the American Mafia

    (3)
    Venture into the past to learn about the rise and fall of the American mafia -- after the sun goes down and the city comes alive. On this walking tour, uncover the history of 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 1900s, flourished from the 30s through the 50s, and finally experienced an ugly decline through the last decades of the century. Travel from the East Village down through Little Italy while hearing the tales of Lucky Luciano's ruthless rise to power and his affiliation with other notorious criminals such as Carlo Gambino, Vito Genovese and Meyer Lansky. You'll stop outside the tenements, cafes, restaurants, social clubs, funeral homes and even alleyways where all the action happened. Embark on a tour to uncover an epic tale that spans 100 years and across the Atlantic and back, while never leaving the vibrant streets of New York.

    Little Italy and Chinatown Gangster Tour

    (1)
    Ditch the saggy-pants, gold-chained rappers of the 21st century who assert themselves as "OGs." Instead, travel back in time on this tour from the 1840's through 1920's to become acquainted with the actual "original gangsters" of NYC--street thugs and mafia bosses. Learn about how small packs of immigrant thugs with tightly knit loyalties evolved into corporate style American syndicates. While traveling down Mulberry Street from Chinatown to Little Italy, you'll explore where most of the notorious gangsters in New York rose up. See it all, from the former Five Points, New York's most infamous slum, to the narrow alleys of Chinatown's Bloody Angle. In Little Italy's Historic District, hear stories of the ruthless tactics of the first Mafia bosses of New York and the proud efforts of the NYPD to stop these thugs. Organized Crime as we know it was born on these streets!
