Gangster Tour a target hit! Review by P-Dog Bensonhurst
Your rating
I never knew and never expect what fun I had on this tour. Coming from Brooklyn with my in laws from Ohio (who think that heated catsup on noodles is okay,) finally saw the light and where the bodies are hidden on this tour. The facts from the park honoring a Italian hero cop to Mott street the heart of the Godfather himself, we laughed and learned more than my Nanna would tell on Christmas Eve. BASTA! WHAT A FUN TOUR ! Take this tour an offer you can't refuse! CANNOLIS FOR EVERY ONE! (Posted on 12/15/2016)
Excellent Review by BFF
Your rating
We took this tour on Saturday. So interesting.As a native New Yorker it amazes me that I have walked by these sights many times and never even knew the history.Our guide,Kyle, was EXCELLENT. Charming and knowledgeable and stopped to talk in shaded areas so we weren't so uncomfortable on a very hot day. I hope we get him again n our next tour.

That was very cool, getting a tour of your gadren. Sorry it's in such a depressing state. It's been raining here for days as well probably a week or so actually, but the rain has been very light, so I don't think we've gotten nearly as much as you have. With all the terrible flooding in neighboring states we still have much to be thankful for though. (Posted on 8/7/2013)

ඕක පටන් අරන් තියෙන්නෙ මෙහෙමයි..In Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1392), the Nun's Priest's Tale is set Syn March bigan thritty dayes and two. Chaucer lrbaobpy meant 32 days after March, i.e. May 2, the anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia, which took place in 1381. However, readers apparently misunderstood this line to mean March 32, i.e April 1. In Chaucer's tale, the vain cock Chauntecler is tricked by a fox.In 1508, a French poet referred to a poisson d’avril (April fool, literally April fish ), a possible reference to the holiday. In 1539, Flemish poet Eduard de Dene wrote of a nobleman who sent his servants on foolish errands on April 1. In 1686, John Aubrey referred to the holiday as Fooles holy day , the first British reference. On April 1, 1698, several people were tricked into going to the Tower of London to see the Lions washed. The name April Fools echoes that of the Feast of Fools, a Medieval holiday held on December 28.In the Middle Ages, New Year's Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns. In some areas of France, New Year's was a week-long holiday ending on April 1. So it is possible that April Fools originated because those who celebrated on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates. The use of January 1 as New Year's Day was common in France by the mid-sixteenth century, and this date was adopted officially in 1564 by the Edict of Roussillon.In the eighteenth century the festival was often posited as going back to the time of Noah. According to an English newspaper article published in 1789, the day had its origin when Noah sent his dove off too early, before the waters had receded; he did this on the first day of the Hebrew month that corresponds with April.ඔය මගුල ලංකාවට ගැලපෙනවද නම් මම දන්නෙ නෑ. ඒ උනාට ඔය දවස මහ කරදර දවසක්.මේ අවුරුද්දෙ නම් කවුරුත් මාව රවට්ටන්න ආවෙ නෑ. ඒ උනාට ඔය දවසට කාටවත් ආරංචියක් කියන්නත් බෑ. පලයන් යන්න බොරු කියන් නැතුව කියනවා. අන්තිමට දිවුරන්නත් වෙනව ඒක ඇත්තක් කියල ඔප්පු කරන්න. ඇත්තක් කිව්වත් කවුරුවත් විශ්වාස කරන්නෙ නෑ. අපේ ගමේ ඉස්සර මලගෙයක් වෙලා තියෙනව අප්‍රියෙල් 1 වෙනිද දවසක, අන්තිමට මල ගේ ඇහැට දැක්ක ගමේ මිනිස්සු විතරයි ඇවිල්ල තියෙන්නෙ මල ගෙදර. ඇයි පනිවිඩේ කියන කවුරුවත් විශ්වාස කරල නෑ. බොරුවක් කියල හිතල තියෙන්නෙ. ඔය වගේ බහුබූත දවස් තව තියෙනවනෙ.. වැලන්ටයින්, හැලොවීන් වගේ. ඕව ඉතින් නවත්වන්න බෑ. අනුගත වෙනව මිසක්. 0 likes (Posted on 4/13/2013)
