    Welcome to New York. Walk quickly, scowl slightly, and you’ll fit right in.
    New York Crime: A Tour of the City's Most Infamous Scandals, will guide
    you through the beautiful neighborhoods of Manhattan as you explore its ugliest
    crimes. It’s the gritty and the pretty.

    This tour is brought to you by ListenUp Audio, a leader in spoken word
    production since 2010. ListenUp provides the voices for walking tours,
    audiobooks, podcasts, and more. Visit us at www.listenup.audio. And now, onwith our tour:

    My name is Kevin and I’ll be guiding you today. This tour takes
    approximately an hour and a half to complete. You can stop at any time and
    start at the same spot later. If you’d like, you can put your phone in your pocket
    and just listen from here. I’ll be giving you clear directions, and the audio will
    automatically start when you get close to each point of interest. If a site is closed
    or your path is blocked, don’t worry. Just go around it. The tour will pick up at
    the next location. And this is important: PLEASE be sure to stay aware of your
    surroundings at all times and obey all traffic signals.

    Okay, I think that’s it. You should be on the corner of Franklin Street and West
    Broadway. If so, let’s begin.

    You’re now standing in one of the dirtiest, most corrupt, wicked cities in the
    world. It’s wonderful. And its scandals are the stuff history is made of. They are the moments that
    have established New York's identity as the home of the ruthlessly ambitious,
    the wildly passionate, the daring, and the insane.

    Here are just a few of their stories. Enjoy the tour.
