Not in the movies

I come from an immigrant settled neighborhood. When Tammany hall and the NYC socialites were bored of the beach..the poor,the servants,the hiding ,and sick quickly established neighborhoods with their own people. The Irish settled with Spanish next door to Italians from Sicily. The slang paddy wagon could have easily been forged in these neighborhood streets.
Policeman and firemen became the norm along with hustlers,thieves,IRA, and crooks all in the same households.
It’s a story, it’s all true, and I’ve lived it everywhere this land was made for you and me
