review The Gangs of New York an informal history of the underworld 107 Download å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ä Herbert Asbury Herbert Asbury Ä 7 review Esta obra é uma crônica da explosão dos fora da lei e dos gângsteres ue aterrorizavam a cidade de Nova York por uase cem an. So thoroughly does Herbert Asbury embellish his facts in The Gangs of New York An Informal History of the Underworld that things just end up becoming a muddled farce particularly near the end of the book where the names Blanky the Blank is the general setup for these and the stories have piled up beyond all recognitionIt sounds fun than it actually is a 1920s journalist recounting New York s heady violent days in absurd exaggeration and abandon Prostitution drug abuse hyper violent nonsense the whole nine yardsAnd it is fun For a bitBut then things become a slog really and one gangster s colorful anecdote is indistinguishable from another s and Asbury s preposterous assertions detract from the pretty interesting without all the exaggeration anyway stories It s impossible to know these gangsters I suppose and humanizing them might be an exercise in futility but I really can t imagine that the world is as film noir y as Asbury might have us believe He touches briefly on the complex social and racial issues that influenced the gangsters decisions to join this dark underworld but he s really only paying this type of sociological examination lip service He d rather have the characters saying Youse goys is gunna get it see Pull out the brickbats boys and shows em what s what Again sounds cool for a second And then you read the same fucking thing three hundred timesLike most folks reading this nowadays I came to Asbury s text through Martin Scorsese s 2002 film of the same name But even that absurd cartoon fares better than what Asbury is doing here namely because it s able to limit itself to a few particularly interesting storylines and of course it features the absolutely brilliant Daniel Day Lewis It might ve been better if Asbury simply decided between verisimilitude and complete fiction instead of trying to walk the line and doing both approaches a disservice

This was a huge struggle to get through Each page was the same as the next just listing different crimes and violent acts It just blurred into one long lethargic can t wait to get to the end book I was actually so glad to finish it which is a very bad sign If I love a book I actually mourn it a little bit when I finish But this book was written in the late 1920 s so it was going to be a challenge and I didn t particularly like the film either I only picked it up to start my A Z list going as the author is an A There is some debate about how much of it was actually true and how much was fiction but I like to think of it as a historic account as it is based on newspaper reports of the time I also like the fact it has photos of real people and I found the drawings interesting too All I can say is New York at that time sounded dreadful and my next book has to be something uplifting and enjoyable

Just because this was for me doesn t mean it was for everyone I just love reading about the vice and crime that characterizes the history of New York especially in the time period discussed in this non fiction book Starting at about 1829 and ending when the book was written in 1928 it chronicles the worst parts of town and its inhabitants tough tough men women and children who did unspeakable things to survive They were sometimes colorful and sometimes pathetic and their way of life is just unimaginable to me At a time when a suare mile of London s east end the neighborhood so wrenchingly portrayed in the novels of Charles Dickens contained 175000 inhabitants Now York s fourth ward had a population density of 290000 per suare mile in immigrant neighborhoodsFun to see how mixed up the gangs were with the polititians and labor unions Those respectable institutions couldn t get it done without these guysI love how this was written so long ago that truthfulness seems no important than legend and folklore I love and am sad that many of the place names don t exist any It is written in a voice that itself reminds the reader of a very different system of political correctness A little tedious toward the end but by that time I was ready for stories about the mob
