Join New York Adventure Club ( http://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) as we step back in time to explore the forgotten stories and historic remnants of Five Points, a 19th-century slum that was infamous for decades as New York City’s center of violent crime, unemployment, prostitution, gambling, infectious diseases, and filth. Led by guide and neighborhood expert Lloyd Trufelman, our unique experience will include: • The history of Five Points and how it grew into one of the world's most notorious slums
• A walk through the narrow streets of Chinatown to trace the stories and remnants of Five Points, including former alleyways, old churches, and even a building that once hosted rat-on-rat fights
• An exclusive look inside one of New York's first tenements, which has been standing since 1824
• A discussion around films and television shows based in Five Points, such as Martin Scorsese's 2002 film “Gangs of New York," and how historically accurate they really are See you there! * Please bring a water bottle and comfortable pair of shoes as we’ll be on our feet for the duration of the experience!
