Crime Tour : Stories From The Dark Side - Walking Tour

Spend an evening on the beat with a retired NYPD officer, learning the shocking truth of New York’s organized crime rings and modern scandals.

Together you’ll visit the Lower East Side, Wall Street, and Little Italy; breeding grounds for all types of outrageous NYC criminals, from Captain Kidd and Boss Tweed to John Gotti, Leona Helmsley, and the real Wolves of Wall Street.

Starting in Lower Manhattan, you’ll learn of political intrigue and corruption in New York City stretching back hundreds of years. Move from power to money with tales of Wall Street run amok, whether trying to overthrow the US Government or literally getting away with murder. In the Lower East Side, visit Five Points, a particularly notorious spot, stroll through Chinatown to learn about violent turf wars fought here during the 1970s and 1980s.

Your NYPD guide will separate truth from fiction, and tell you what it took to finally clean up New York City after centuries of degradation.
