Gangs of New York
Just east of today's City Hall and Municipal Building, this was once a foul-smelling, disease-ridden district. Brought to life in the movie Gangs of New York, it was a place of violence, gang wars, poverty and corruption. The district evokes such places of notoriety as Paradise Square, Cow Bay and Bottle Alley, and such gangs as the Roach Guards, Plug Uglies, Shirt Tails and Dead Rabbits. Highlights of this fascinating tour include: Five Points visitors—Davy Crockett, Charles Dickens and Abraham Lincoln A Five Points success story: Al Smith—Tammany Hall protégé, state governor, presidential candidate The oldest Jewish graveyard in North America The Roman Catholic church with Anglican, Cuban, Irish, Italian, Chinese and Buddhist history
