Last week, we were fortunate enough to join the 2nd installment of the Crazy Joe Gallo tour through the neighborhood, led by Tom Folsom, author of "The Mad Ones," and sponsored by Freebird Books.
Anyone interested in neighborhood history or NYC history in general should definitely check out this tour (the last installment of which is tomorrow, Saturday 5/23, at 1pm and is free). There will also be a screening of the Gallo themed movie "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight" at Jalopy on Tuesday 5/26 and some pictures from the period at Work on 5/30. Check out details on Freebird's events page.
Also check out our interview with Tom Folsom here and a sneak peak of the tour below:
To learn about the history of these sites and others, you'll have to go on the tour or read the book!
