In 1920, upon the advent of Prohibition, Gothams shadowy underworld began evolving from strictly regional and often rag-tag street gangs into a sophisticated worldwide syndicate that was--like the chocolate egg cr me--incubated within the confines of its five boroughs. New York City Gangland offers an unparalleled collection of rarely circulated images, many appearing courtesy of exclusive law enforcement sources, in addition to the private albums of indigenous racketeering figures such as Charles Lucky Luciano, Al Scarface Capone, Joe The Boss Masseria, Crazy Joe Gallo, and John Gotti.
