A description of it
Famous & Infamous Manhattan: East Village
A tour based on "A Colorful Walking Tour of New York's Most Notorious Crime* Sites" by Andrew Roth. Jim Naureckas' www.nysonglines.com/ is an invaluable source. Also Bruce Kayton's "Radical History Walking Tours of Manhattan." *Many here are noteworthy and far from criminals.
