About the event
Herbert Ashbury’s “Gangs of New York” was a fantastic account of the notorious Five Points neighborhood in Lower Manhattan. It was brought to life by Martin Scorsese’s 2002 movie of the same name. Come join Brad as he talks about what life was really like in what was considered New York City’s first slum, through stories, the famous and infamous residents and visitors, and locations that still exist today.
