Event description

Description

Prohibition was a unique period of time in American history. Perhaps nowhere in New York City was this more demonstrated than in the pre-dominantly Irish neighborhood of Hells Kitchen. A journalist once asked a Hells Kitchen resident how many speakeasies are there in Hells Kitchen. She replied Theres more speakeasies than children and there are very easily 200 children per block.

On this three hour pub crawl, we will stop at three bars that were once speakeasies in Hells Kitchen for drinks. Having the benefit of being next to the Hudson River, many of the early successful bootleggers in New York City were Hells Kitchen residents at some point in their lives either in their formative years or as adults. They would utilize the coming and goings of ships on the Hudson River, called rum runners, to receive illicit alcohol. We will learn about who many of these early bootleggers were, their schemes and the organization they belonged to dedicated to trafficking in the shipped alcohol.

We will also learn of the rebels amongst these scofflaws. Those independent-minded gangsters who often didnt play by underworlds rules and the consequences of their actions. Further, we will see how Prohibition ended and how the gangsters endedeither their lives or their careers as bootleggers.

In addition, we will learn about some more historical facts of the neighborhood including Death Avenue, Doctors Row, the old Paddys Market and more. And, of course, you will learn why Hells Kitchen is called Hells Kitchen. All this and more on this spirited pub crawl through Hells Kitchen.
