The Mafia And The Battle For New York

From the Godfather to the Sopranos, from Capone to Boardwalk Empire, America is fascinated with the Mafia. And the story of  the Mafia wars for the control of New York City is among the fascinating stories in American History.

The Mafia’s roots were in an extortion gang called The Black Hand. They terrorized Enrico Caruso and lured an American policeman, Joseph Petrosino, to his death in Italy. (Click here to read this amazing story.)

Death Threat Against Lt. Joe Petrosino

After a series of bloody wars that dominated the headlines and provided fodder for dozens of movies, Lucky Luciano Luciano consolidated power, arranged for the drug trade and formed a national board of directors for the Mafia! Among the fascinating personalities covered in this fascinating multimedia presentation are Meyer Lanky, Al Capone, Frank Costello, Nucky Thompson, and many others – you will be amazed at how organized crime became one of the biggest businesses in America
