While The Streets Of Manhattan Are Awash With Mafia And Mob Tours As Well As “Gangs Of New York”-Esque Criminal History Tours, These All Tend To Focus On Organized Crime – And Quite Frankly They All Feel A Bit Corny And “Theme Tour” For Our Taste!
Our tour focuses exclusively on the most fascinating murders that occurred in New York City from the 1960s – 1990s – with not a Mafioso or bad Daniel Day-Lewis accent in sight. Our tour covers murders that are still well-known as well as murders that received breathless front page news coverage in their day but eventually slipped into obscurity. You’ll almost certainly have heard of two of our cases – a major feature film was made about one of them, a well-regarded TV movie about the other. Whether covering cases well-known or obscure, we’ve gone well beyond standard research to dig up surprising details buried in old case files, long-forgotten magazine articles, out-of-print books, and other resources.
Your tour guide – Eddie – an attorney, 20 year resident of NYC, and lifelong true crime enthusiast – lived for years in the building where one of the most gruesome murders was committed. When this particular criminal came up for parole (which was denied), Eddie was one of a small handful of neighborhood residents who were interviewed for a New York Times article about the case. Join him for a walk around the gritty city as he shares his insight and knowledge about a pre-gentrification New York – a city where anything could happen – and often did.
