Note: 
A colorful story set on New York's mean streets in the early 1900's, this is about ethnic teenage gangs and grown up gangsters, some based on real people. A Jewish-Irish boy is the narrator who recounts a tale of struggling for nickels and dimes, facing down rivals, and working for a fearsome crook named Monk Eastman in tandem with his arch-enemy, Izzy Fink. Fast-paced and adventurous, it neither exalts street life nor condemns it, letting the characters, their motivation, and actions speak for themselves.
