NYCGO Member  Logo Dedicated to the history of organized criminal activity, the Museum of the American Gangster examines gangsters from 1768 until a decade ago. Set in a former speakeasy, the museum places rare and remarkable objects—from the bullets from the St. Valentine's Day Massacre to death masks of John Dillinger—in context, showing how crime in America results from two core American values which are always in conflict: moral certainty and liberty. From the Quakers of the Underground Railroad to the tough Jews of the Lower East Side, they shed light on little-known areas of criminal organization.
