Forum locked New York City, New York, USA

The Big Apple, here it is, the largest city in the USA. She's brash, big, and tough as nails. Burned, scarred, blown up, and beaten, even a war 200 years ago; she's seen it all and beaten it all folks, and she aint layin down for nobody. You disrespect New York? She'll chew your ass up and spit you out in a body bag with cinder-blocks tied to you. It's called the East River.

Forum locked Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan, New York City

Hell's Kitchen ...more than a neighborhood...it's a state of mind. From the slaughterhouses and breweries of the 1800s, the draft riots of 1863, the Fighting 69th of World War I, the home of New York's most dangerous criminals from the early tenement days to Prohibition to the Westies, Hell's Kitchen rose from the blood and fire of the poor.

Little Italy is nestled downtown, between Greenwich Village to the north and Chinatown to the south. To the east of Little Italy you will find the historic Bowery and Lower East Side. To the west you will encounter the bohemian SoHo and TriBeCa.
In the beginning, Little Italy gained renown for its gangs, prostitutes, criminals, and street urchins.

Forum locked Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City

One of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, the Lower East Side has long been known as a lower-class, working neighborhood and often as an outright slum. The Lower East Side once was, and in a few parts still is, a center for Eastern European Jewish immigrant culture. More recently, it has been settled by immigrants from Latin America and elsewhere.

Forum locked Harlem, Manhattan, New York City

Not surprisingly, as a neighborhood with a long history of marginalization and economic deprivation, Harlem has long been associated with crime. In the 1920s, the white mafia (both Jewish and Italian) played a major role in running the whites-only nightclubs in the neighborhood, and the speakeasies that catered to a white audience. Mobster Dutch Schultz controlled all liquor production and distribution in Harlem in the 1920s.
