The Museum of the American Gangster, East Village.

John Dillinger death masks.

Some of the (expired) $2M in gold currency and other items found in two safes in the basement.

Into the basement...

Looking into the steel-reinforced bunker directly under the speakeasy bar...

...where this wire was once rigged to dynamite to blow up the bar above if ever there was a raid. The owners are almost certain that it no longer works. Also, there's no record that the dynamite was ever found.

The bar's original icebox. There's a bunch of cool old labels stuck on the back wall. I wonder what else they kept in here?

Couple of paw prints of the bar's original "basement cat".

One of these windows was my very first NYC apartment. Don't ask me which one.

Roosevelt Island.
