Street gangs in New York City

New York City has a 200 year history of street gangs going back to the early 1800s. During the 1830s & 1840s the street gangs and political leaders worked together in a variety of illegal racquets. Some of the street gangs including youth were were descendents of the colonialists, but many gangs were formed by Irish, German and Jewish immigrants. By the middle of the 20th Century, street gangs were composed by Hispanic and Black youth and by the late 1970s and early 1980s, street gang identity was waning.

The advent of Hip-Hop culture, drew youth away from gangs and channeled their time on the streets into a variety of different art forms such as graffiti, break dancing and rapping. The competitive nature of hip-hop caused it to flourish during the 1980s in New York, but by the early 1990s, a new generation of youth were forming street gangs again.

The following list reflects gang names that have appeared in the following burroughs of New York. It does not mean that these gangs are actually active, but at some time in the past, graffiti of these gang have appeared on the walls.
