THE FIVE POINTS CONCLUDED completes Rocco Dormarunno's retrospective into the Wild, Wild Lower East Side of 19th century Manhattan. Here is Hell-Cat Jane, whose sharpened wit, teeth and nails tear through a world dominated by men. Here are John and Bart, two gun-toting bank robbers who try to rescue a girl from a white-slavery ring. And here are Police Superintendent Michael Connery and his counterpart, Dead Rabbit gang leader Petey Daley, surviving, in their own ways, the chaos of it all. Mr. Dormarunno's previous book, THE FIVE POINTS, earned a position of "Suggested Reading" on the website WWW.IRISHINNYC.FREESERVERS.COM, as well as the following praise from Jo Shenman's cable-TV program, INTO THE 21St:"A terrific book about a period in New York's history which until recently has been swept under the rug. I urge everyone with an interest in history or New York to read it!"
