The Crazy Joe Gallo walking tour

On May 9th, at 1pm, join Freebird Books for a Crazy Joe Gallo walking tour of Red Hook and Carroll Gardens with Tom Folsom, author of "The Mad Ones: Crazy Joe Gallo and the Revolution at the Edge of the Underworld"

The tour will begin at Carroll Park and move to different stops throughout the area.

From the Freebird event description:
Crazy Joe Gallo was immortalized for the blood he spilled on a Mulberry Street curb just outside Umberto’s Clam House on April 7, 1972. But the sidewalks this celebrity gangster more regularly strolled were along the waterfront of Red Hook, Brooklyn, in the vicinity of Freebird Books.

Find out more details, including RSVP info (strongly recommended) at Freebird's site.

And don't forget Freebird's other great events this weekend and next weekend.
