    I'm truckin' through The Westies by TJ English. Story about the Irish gangs in the 70's in New York's West Side. Brutal bunch! Ties in with a lot of cameo's of the Italian Mob era (Casstelano, DeMeo, Joe Coffey the cop). Anybody else read this shit?

    I read The Westies book 20+ years ago. I had a bunch of TC books but after going through them a few times, I tossed most in the trash.

    There was one NY Mafia book that featured a relative of a High School classmate of mine.

    My Mom's family is from Hell's Kitchen. They knew Featherstone and Coonan. Back in the day most of the Irish knew each other all over the city somehow. In the 70's most of my family were cops and were ashamed of those turds. I also knew someone doing life in Dannemora for killing a relative of that crew. Fucking looney tunes there.
