Cover ArtThe gangs of New York : an informal history of the underworld
by Asbury, Herbert, 1891-1963.
I thought that Luc Sante's "Low life : lures and snares of old New York" (see farther down this list)was a better book, this still had some nice information about very early gangs and rotten characters.   posted Jul 2, 2012 at 5:09PM

Cover ArtA Walker in the City
by Kazin, Alfred
Really a nice book about NYC back when everything you would ever need was found in your neighborhood. Not unlike today.   posted Jul 2, 2012 at 4:58PM

Cover ArtA Study in Sherlock: Stores Inspired by the Holmes Clan
by King, Laurie R.
Some very good, some not so. Over all an entertaining read for Sherlock fans   posted Jul 2, 2012 at 4:57PM
