Looks so interesting. Good luck with doing more research. I lived in NYC during the 50's, but wasn't in a gang, ha ha. Can't help you there. Carole

Great, great website! I have been looking for a site or any information source devoted to NYC fighting gangs for a long, long time. After reading the books, Run Baby Run and The Cross and the Switchblade in the 1970s, I became fascinated by this era in the NYC boroughs from the mid -1950s. I look forward to the expanded growth of this website with great anticipation. Hopefully, a wealth of information and photos from the fighting gang era will surface as a result.
