Jewish Mob Walking Tour

Jewish mobTrace the steps of pre-Prohibition era gangsters like Monk Eastman, Max “Kid Twist” Zweifach, “Big” Jack Zelig and Benjamin “Dopey” Fein – pivotal figures in the organizing of crime in New York City; paving the way for men like Arnold Rothstein, Meyer Lansky and "Bugsy" Siegel. Learn about the Jewish immigrant experience on the Lower East Side and the conditions that led to organized gangsterism; visit the sites of gang headquarters, shootouts and assassinations, and learn how the Jewish Mob expanded out of the slums and into a contemporary organized crime syndicate.

The Jewish Mob tour was prepared with the direct input of the families and estates of the crime figures discussed on tour, as well generous assistance from the American Jewish Historical Society and leading authors such as Rose Keefe (The Starker, Guns and Roses, The Man Who Got Away), to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for tour-goers using original source documents, images, firsthand accounts and family stories previously unavailable elsewhere.
