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

November 3, 2019    
10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join the Or Zarua Young Professionals for a walking tour on the Lower East Side. Meet at the Eldridge Street Synagogue.

Learn where leaders of the Jewish Underworld began their nefarious activities, and discuss questions of morality, power & assimilation.

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.
