What People are saying about “New York City’s Five Points: The Most Dangerous and Decadent Neighborhood Ever!”
“New York City’s Five Points: The Most Dangerous and Decadent Neighborhood Ever!” by Joe Bruno is another one of his books that I just loved. Couldn’t walk away from this compelling read if I tried. Bruno has a way of telling a story that makes it come alive right in front of your eyes. He brings along his knowledge and great humor that makes this an exhilarating turbulent heart thumping ride.
I would highly recommend this book and all others by this author. He adds a real life force to his well-researched, true-crime stories. Nothing better than the real deal and this is what you get.
“As the building was being torn down, laborers were seen carrying copious sacks of human bones that had been found inside the walls, underneath the floorboards, and underneath the cellar. In the next few days, dozens of gang members raided the premises looking for buried treasure they heard had been hidden there.
Yet, nothing of value was ever found there.”

As usual this was a great book. Joe has a way of putting you back in the time the book is portraying. I am a big fan of the era and love reading about all the areas that I have actually been too. I can picture in my mind how they looked back then. I look forward always to another book by Joe Bruno.
Fascinating. The characters of the Lower East Side

Having grown up and lived in the area for 23 years I found it gripping and devastatingly intriguing. I can’t wait to read more. I found Joe Bruno thanks to a particular Facebook page group and I am enthralled. I will seek out more of his books.
What people are saying about Famous Murders, Riots, Disasters, and Crooked Politicians: New York City – 1834 to 1938
5.0 out of 5 stars and Crooked Politicians – New York City – 1834 – 1938″ by Joe Bruno is a “must-have” for all readers interested in New York City
By N. Schnidman
“Famous Murders, Riots, Disasters, and Crooked Politicians – New York City – 1834 – 1938” by Joe Bruno is a “must-have” for all readers interested in New York City history or anyone who loves to read riveting tales of the seedy under-belly that gave birth to one of the greatest cities in the world.
Told with unflinching realism and historical accuracy by someone who was raised on the streets he writes about, the novel covers everything from some of the most grizzly murders in American history to such terrifying and devastating disasters as the “Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire” that changed American labor laws all over the country.
The author of other New York City based titles, such as, Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps-Volume 1 and 2 and Find Big Fat Fanny Fast: The Biggest Mafia Killer Ever!, Joe Bruno is a wonderful writer who does extensive research into his subjects, writes with great clarity and loves his topics.
Highly enjoyable, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves history, New York City and just plain great stories.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book.
Another great book by Mr Bruno. I find it amazing how Joe makes you feel like you lived in that time period. I remember back in high school and in history class the subject of Tammney Hall and boss Tweed were discussed. They showed a big round table with Tweed in the middle and pointing to the guy on his right and left and blaming them for the trouble NYC was in with crime. At that time I wasn’t fully aware of how the city was overrun with crooks, thieves, and just illegal activities. I now love the era and read everything I can covering the time period. Thanks Joe.
