About the Author

Herbert Asbury, an early 20th-century journalist, made a name for himself by documenting the gangs, pimps, prostitutes, and thieves that thrived in the underbellies of New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and New Orleans. His works, still in print after sevety-five years, are often hailed as the best snapshots of their time period. The Gangs of New York was the basis of Martin Scorcese’s 2003 film.
