Organized Crime in Philadelphia

April 25 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Organized crime in Philadelphia is often overshadowed by underworld intrigues 100 miles up the road in New York, but the City of Brotherly Love has a rich Mob story of its own. In a program dubbed “It’s Not Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Organized Crime in the City of Brotherly Love,” a panel of authors, journalists, experts and a former underworld racketeer will break down the history of organized crime in Philadelphia, from Angelo Bruno and Phil Testa to Nicky Scarfo and a notorious Irish burglary crew, as well as the cityโ€™s deep ties to Atlantic City. The program is free to museum members or with paid museum admission, which is $19.95 for Nevada residents.
