With more than one million people crammed into just over twenty-two square miles, Manhattan Island is a petri dish for the study of humanity. From murder and suicide to fatal accidents, death takes myriad forms among the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps. With the city always a hotbed of mob activity, gangsters have left victims of hits throughout the city. The boom and bust of Wall Street often resulted in tragic economic desperation. The soaring heights of Manhattan's skyscrapers provided for macabre incidents of New Yorkers falling out of windows--or perhaps mysteriously pushed. Pulling from the pages of New York's heyday of newspapers, author Lawrence R. Samuel reveals the lurid and vivid details of Gotham's deadly past.
