‘Kosher’ Nostra: Jewish Gangsters and the Lower East Side: A Walking Tour

About this event

Arnold Rothstein, Meir Lansky and Bugsy Siegel were all notorious gangsters whose criminal activities extended to Atlantic City, Miami, Cuba and Las Vegas, but their stories began on the Lower East Side of New York. We will examine where these leaders of the Jewish underworld began their nefarious activities. Along the way we will analyze questions of morality, power and assimilation.

Use your imagination to evoke what once existed, as we view sites that were associated with these Jewish Gangsters.

Join Rabbi David Kalb, your guide, as he sheds light on the Jews of this dark aspect of New York’s ‘past, on this very popular tour.
