Asbury's book is highly readable, full of blood and thunder, loads of colorful characters and as many tall tales as there are pages. The book isn't so much a history as it is an impression. What Asbury captures is clearly an impression of the Five Points and its gangs in the public consciousness and folklore. This is a sort of "if it didn't happen this way, it should have" bit of storytelling. If you want actual history, look elsewhere. If you want a strong taste of American folklore, start reading.

New York 1863. Prima di diventare la città che conosciamo oggi, la metropoli del benessere, del potere e dei sogni sconfinati, New York era un luogo assai diverso, una città nascente dove il desiderio di una vita migliore aleggiava sulle strade piagate dal crimine. Proprio in queste strade, mentre la sopravvivenza della nazione stessa era in gioco sui campi di battaglia della Guerra Civile, stava nascendo un vasto e pericoloso un vasto e pericoloso sottobosco criminale. Erano le Gangs of New York, specializzati nel contrabbando, nel racket, nella prostituzione, nel gioco d'azzardo e negli omicidi al punto da diventare leggendari.
