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?!
