If you’ve never seen the 2002 movie Gangs of New York, do yourself a solid and make it happen. Featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Diaz, Liam Neeson in a non-Taken role and all masterfully directed by Martin Scorsese, it’s truly worthy of all it’s acclaim.
Set in 1846, the title is self-explanatory. It’s about gangs in New York fighting for and protecting their turf.
There is still a bloody and brutal gang war going on in New York. One that has spanned years and shows no sign of stopping.
We are talking, of course, about the ice cream truck war.
