Kosher' Nostra: Jewish Gangsters and the Lower East Side
October 22, 2017
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 on this WALKING TOUR 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.
Time: 10:45 AM
Meeting Place: Tour meets across the street from the Museum at Eldridge Street located at 12 Eldridge Street – between Canal and Division Streets.
