New York Mafia Tour: Little Italy’s Mobsters, Gangsters and Tough Guys

Gangster Tour of New York

Meet the tour guide at Petrosino Square, named for Lt Joseph Petrosino, a New York City police officer who was a pioneer in the fight against organized crime. It’s an appropriate spot to start this New York Mafia tour. The streets and history of Little Italy await.

Visit St Patrick’s Old Cathedral, a historic landmark Catholic Church and cemetery that was featured in the film Mean Streets as well as Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather trilogy. See mobster John Gotti’s favorite Little Italy hangouts and stop at the corner of Kenmare and Mulberry streets, recognized as “the curb exchange,” a wholesale market that sold illegal liquor. Italian Mafia were known to set up shop at places like barber shops and restaurants on this street, including the one and only Lucky Luciano, an American mobster considered to be the father of modern organized crime in the United States.

Then it’s on to the legendary Umberto’s Clam House, the site of Little Italy’s most infamous mob shooting — New York gangster Joe Gallo was shot and killed here in 1972. And check out Mulberry Street Bar, a century old Little Italy favorite that was famously frequented by characters from The Sopranos.

Finally, visit some of the film locations from classic gangster movies like The Godfather and Goodfellas. The tour ends at Cha Cha’s In Bocca Al Lupo, a unique Italian cafe in the heart of Little Italy.

I took my daughter to NYC as a graduation present. She is a big fan of Mob Wives and has been obsessed with the mob for awhile. My wife found this walking tour online and we booked it. Bam! Home Run!!! My daughter was thrilled! Our guide Kyle was knowlegable beyond belief! We learned so much, details about things, events and people I had heard about and the same things about MANY others that I did not! Kyle's attention to detail, speaking manner and pace were all spot on! My daughter followed him around like a puppy Kyle if you are reading this I know you remember her! I can't begin to explain the tremendous value of this tour! Out of a possible Kyle gets a 100! If you are interested in mob history, want a great tour of Little Italy I STRONGLY suggest you book it!
