Additional Information about this walk
During the 1920s, a series of increasingly spectacular acts of violence spread like wildfire throughout Chicago´s gangland. The trouble started after the government had banned the sale and use of alcohol. At first the beer swilling community were grateful to the gangland criminals that risked their freedom and their lives and turned a blind-eye to the bloodshed. But illegal activities is big money and it wasn´t long before the mobsters got out of hand culminating in the Valentine´s Day Massacre and the death of a newspaper reporter. It came to a point when something had to be done.
For all their brutal violence towards each other, the goodfellas of the mafia have a strict code of conduct not to harm police, media or the general public and in return for lenient favours they feed the pockets of judges and politicians. Join us on our walking audio tour of Chicago´s gangland and learn about the amazing stories of the 1920´s cut-throat prohibition, the dazzling and dangerous lifestyle of gangsters or the mystery of the St. Valentine´s Day massacre, to name few.
