An Informal History of the Underworld. Long hand-passed among a cult readership, 'The Gangs of New York' is a tour through a now unrecognizable city of abysmal poverty and habitual violence cobbled, as Luc Santa has written, "from legend, memory, police records, the self-aggrandizements of aging crooks, popular journalism, and solid historical research." Asbury presents the definitive work on this subject, an illumination of the gangs of old New York that ultimately gave rise to the Mafia and its depiction in films like 'The Godfather'.
