Old New York had gangs like the Plug Uglies, Dead Rabbits, Daybreak Boys, Swamp Angels, Slaughter Housers, the Forty Thieves, and the Hudson Dusters. This is Jewish history, kid. We may be talking about your zeide; in 1921, in New York jails, 20 percent of all prisoners were Jewish. And that’s just who got caught.
