tours resume September 22,2020...First let me say that most Gangster Tours in New York City are total BS- This experience comes right from the “horse’s mouth” no tour guide no filter. Get the real stories while visiting notorious gangland locations as we walk from the East Village to Little Italy experiencing what it was like to be an associate of New York's famous families. You'll hear first hand accounts of the NYC Mafia and crimes in NYC and taste the local cuisines. We will visit Crime Family member hang-outs where they ate, partied and ran their elusive "family businesses". Visit the locations tour companies don’t even know exist. See the “Ravenite Social Club" and more. We meet at a famous mafia “red sauce joint” est 1908.. ample food provided. We'll top it off with a full-sized cannoli from one of Little Italy's iconic local pastry spots. To date I have hosted over 8,000 guests and have over 1,600 five-star ratings on Airbnb. This is not just another Mafia tour in New York.
