Praise

"A distinct contribution to Americana. . . . The tale is one of blood, excitement, and debauchery.”
The New York Times

"One of the essential works of the city. . . . It owns a direct pipeline to the city’s unconscious.”
—Luc Sante, author of Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York

“A univeral history of infamy, the history of the gangs of New York contains all the confusion and cruelty of the barbarian cosmologies.”
—Jorge Luis Borges

“One of the best American books of its kind. Mr. Asbury writes in a direct and engaging manner.”
—Edmund Pearson, The Saturday Review of Literature
