Overview

Manhattan Mafia Guide: Hits, Homes & Headquarters by Eric Ferrara

When people think about the city of New York, one of the most prominent images is that of the gangster - the mob bosses and their henchmen, living luxurious lifestyles while wreaking havoc on the people who got in their way. In this book, Eric Ferrara will tell us exactly where and when they did their best and worst deeds, allowing readers to literally walk in the footsteps of New York's most notorious Mafioso's, from Dead Rabbits in the 1850s to John Gotti in the 1990s. Organized by neighborhood, each entry will include not only the physical address, but a description of what went down in these places and what they looked like when it happened.

About the Author

Eric Ferarra is the founder and executive director of the Lower East Side History project, an award-winning nonprofit research organization.

Ferrara is a popular public speaker, sits on a number of local boards and has consulted on numerous movie and television projects. A true product of the Lower East Side melting pot, Ferrara's ancestors arrived to New York City from Sicily (1880s), Ukraine (1909), Russia (1917) and Naples (1940s.) He is a fourth-generation native New Yorker and dedicated community activist. This is his second title as an author for The History Press.
