What You'll Do

The East Village and Lower East Side were once collectively known as Wicked New York, an ominous reference to the murder, prostitution, grave-robbing, and other grisly crimes that plagued the area at the time. But cultural historian Robin London doesn't want the lessons of that past to be forgotten. She guides groups through the streets where Jewish and Italian gangsters once schemed, dined, drank, stole, and got whacked to impart a deeper understanding of the city and the criminal mind.

  • Walk Through Wicked New York
    During the first 2.5 hours of the tour, you'll visit the cemetery where one of the most sensational crimes was committed and Tompkins Square Park, the site of a tragic boat fire.

  • Stop for Lunch
    After the street tour, a half-hour lunch break lets you refuel at one of the area's many restaurants. The tour price does not include food.

  • Visit the Museum of the American Gangster
    Continue your criminal education with a one-hour tour at a museum focused on the legacy of gangsters in America. Museum admission is included.
