A site by site, crime by crime walking tour through the seedy under belly of Roaring Twenties Manhattan. Historian Pietrusza introduces us to a rogues gallery of characters who were part of the Big Apple’s rotten core.
“David Pietrusza is a national treasure. Few historians can match his one-two punch of gorgeous prose and deep insight.”
— Bob Batchelor, cultural historian and author
