Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the designated place in Soho to begin your walking tour.

    Stroll at a leisurely pace through Little Italy, home to the American Mafia (Cosa Nostra) that wreaked havoc in the streets. Hear about the trial and sentence of the last don, John Gotti, who was regarded as one of the most powerful crime bosses in the United States.

    In Chinatown, learn about the Tong Gangs that battled one another in the crooked street that became known as 'Bloody Angle,' and check out secret tunnels gang members used to escape and the site of the old Chinese Opera House.

    Next, check out the Five Points neighborhood, a landing place for Irish immigrants escaping the potato famine in the 1800s. The poverty stricken district was known for its gangs, prostitution, and crime, and was depicted in the 2002 film by Martin Scorsese, Gangs of New York.

    You'll see sites such as the Ravenite Social Club, Old Opera House, Columbus Park, and the historic St Patrick's Old Cathedral, among others.

    Check Airbnb for Retired NYPD Gangster Food walk. It’s a retired detective giving the tour and the food is pretty damn amazing too
