Capital District Council for the Social Studies (Albany, NY)
Albany Prohibition - Gangster Tour
Ever hear of Jack “Legs” Diamond?
He was one of the most notorious bootleggers during Prohibition and he had strong ties to the Capital District – in fact, he was mysteriously killed in Albany.
Was he shot by his dedicated wife, Alice, his lovely and glamorous girlfriend, Kiki Roberts, a bootlegging competitor, or was it someone else?!
