Eric Ferrara's "Gangster City"
Check out pictures from the tour and, when you've had your fill of the photos, check out Eric Ferrara's book, Gangsters, Murderers, and Weirdos of New York City's Lower East Side.
Eric's online version features deleted excerpts from the book as well as profiles of some of the most infamous gangsters of the Lower East Side.
And don't forget to visit the East Village Visitor's Center at 308 Bowery, a part of the Lower East Side History Project, to learn more about the history of your neighborhood.
