PODCAST: The Original Bowery Boys / B’hoys

For our very special 25th episode, we give you all sorts of Bowery boys — the cultural and fashion trend of the 1840s, the notorious enemy of the Five Points gangs, and that slapstick bunch of New York actors from the 1930s and 1940s. And of course, a little bit about us!


The Bowery Boys, on their way to battle the Dead Rabbits (or is that the Roach Guards?)

The ‘Dead End Kids’, circa 1938, fresh from their fame in ‘Dead End’ and ‘Angels With Dirty Faces’

From the film ‘Dead End’

Hi Boys,

I just wanted to say I love you guys, and I really enjoyed hearing about your lives this past week… I listen to you every friday morning on my commute from Chelsea up to Columbia where I’m getting my masters in Historic Preservation. I just moved to the city this summer, so I love hearing about its history! More architectural history please!

Yours truly,
