|The 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
|A 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
