Fear City: New York vs. The Mafia

From The Irishman to Goodfellas, it pretty clear that everyone loves a good mob story, and there is no denying that the best ones are those based on reality. Organized crime has a lot of history throughout its tenure all over the world, but there is one place that seems to be a hive of scum and villainy that was once notoriously known for being run by five powerful families. During the 1970s and ‘80s, New York was run by the Mafia, and Netflix has developed a three-part true-crime documentary series showcasing that cities battle with the notorious criminal outfits. Fear City: New York vs. the Mafia is an eye-opening endeavor into the world of wise guys, and the brave individuals that decided enough were enough.

The Gambino, Columbo, Bonanno, Genovesse, and Lucchese crime families had an iron grip on the big apple, and for a while, many expect their empire never to fall. But a group of federal agents did the unthinkable and took on the mob when they were the most dangerous and somehow, against all odds, restored justice to the streets of New York. This unbelievable tale is chronicled in the gripping Netflix docuseries, and if subscribers even think about sleeping on Fear City: New York vs. the Mafia, they better forget about it!
