What you'll do

Interested in exploring New York City from the perspective of ghosts and gangsters? Want to really immerse yourself in the history of this great American city, right from the locations that started it all?

New York City is known worldwide for a colorful gangster past, starting during the 1920s and 30s with murder and mayhem down on every block. Gangster interactions became an everyday occurrence, with gangland shootings dominating news headlines from NYC’s finest hotels, speakeasies, and mysterious sidewalks. Although the activity has since quieted down… it’s still alive, whether you want to believe it or not.

Our customized, historically enriched gangster tour will cover much of the history behind these famed murders, while we take you through the modern day haunted crime scene locations that are still frequented by the famous actors.
Other things to note
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to check in.

Where you'll be

You can get the best of BOTH worlds with this 2 in 1, two hour history-based guided tour of NYC gangster and ghost stories, right from the Districts where it all started! The tour cuts through famous neighborhoods such as The Five Points as seen in Gangs of New York, China Town, the “once” gangster ridden Little Italy, and the haunted old mansions of the West Village ending at America's most haunted plot of land, Washington Square Park.

Five stars to Nate the actual guide. He was very knowledgeable, respectful, and fun to listen to. I would definitely take a tour with Nate again. Three stars to the actual service, because this tour is entirely advertised around Stevie's credentials and expertise, which is why we signed up in the first place, but then, a few hours before the tour began, we simply received a note about who our actual guide would be (not Stevie). Again, Nate was knowledgeable and entertaining but the tour itself is misleadingly advertised. Also, it turns out the actual tour guide was paid based on tips (and the money spent when booking the tour presumably goes to Stevie himself).

We loved this tour! Nate was our guide and he did a great job navigating these neighborhoods and the characters that live there (both in the stories he told and in real life!) My boyfriend and I have lived in the city for a few years but still came out of the tour with a ton of new knowledge and appreciation. It was very COVID-19 safe in terms of masks/distancing and I would recommend for anyone who wants to get to know the city better and hear these interesting stories.

What an epic way to get introduced to the city! We took this tour on our first night in Manhattan. I had been to New York numerous times, but this level of insight and perspective was absolutely captivating! The first thing I noticed and maybe appreciated most about our guide was his level of passion. Mike creates a timeline of the development of the city and as you walk, is able to blend historical facts about the neighborhood buildings and boroughs with legendary events and even some personal stories that will have your mind racing. Time well spent, an awesome experience. Thank you!
