A Tour Through the Deadly Streets of Organized Crime

Organized criminals have played a major role in Greater Boston’s history, lurking just around the corner or inside the inconspicuous building. “Gangland Boston” reveals the hidden history of these places, showing how the Italian Mafia and Irish gangs rose to power, how the Winter Hill Gang ascended to prominence, and how James “Whitey” Bulger become the most feared crime boss throughout the region. From South Boston to the North End, Chinatown, Downtown, Charlestown, Somerville and Brookline, and from Gaspare Messina to the Gustin Gang, the Hip Sing Ton, Joseph Lombardo, Frank Cucchiara, and Harry “Doc” Sagansky…come and see where the mobsters lived, worked, ate, played and died.
