Episode Summary

EDIT
In the 20s, when every illegal bar in Manhattan was making payoffs just to stay open, criminal enterprise became Organized Crime. On the surface the best speakeasies, like the 21 Club, glittered with patrons willing to pay as much for a night out as the average American earned in a year. Kelly travels through the 21 Club's secret vault and onto the island of Broad Channel in Queens. There houses built on pilings over the water of Jamaica Bay still stand from the time when speedboats would load illegal booze from the rum ships floating just outside international waters. Plus we make the acquaintance of Arnold Rothstein, the Prohibition-era gangster who met his end at a secret location we'll get to visit.moreless
