Relive Boston's "Crime of the Century" where it happened

Boston's history is filled with twists and turns. One of my favorite tales is about the then largest robbery in U.S. history which happened in Boston in January of 1950. This "Crime of the Century" rocked the nation -- and the world-- and it wasn't solved until 1956 when one of the robbers ratted out the others. You can still see where it all started. So come with me as we retrace the steps of the infamous Brink's robbery in Boston's North End. With lively descriptions, handouts, maps and other material, we will relive the crime that captivated the world. What happened the night of Jan. 17, 1950? Why didn't the robbers get away "with the perfect crime"? And what really happened to the missing money, which has never been recovered? Experience a side of Boston that's not in the guidebooks with the author of eight books on Boston history and the foremost expert on this crime. We will then go into the North End for cannoli and coffee and more discussion.

We will meet at the corner of Prince Street and Commercial Street in the North End and begin our tour here. We will tour the crime scene (about four blocks total) then walk on Prince Street into the North End for a refreshing coffee and/or cannolli.

Fantastic tour! Stephanie was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Boston or being a tourist in their own city. Stephanie also took us to a local bar for a historical cocktail.

My son and I enjoyed spending time with Stephanie who clearly knows a lot about this crime, Boston history and the mafia. She brought lots of material which gave perspective to what we were seeing and really helped us “live the moment.” As my son said, it’s like we were touring with his best friend’s mom - Stephanie was great. 👍

Overall a very nice tour. I contacted Stephanie about maybe doing an interview for a research paper and she invited me to take the tour which was very informative and will help me to write my paper

Booking this tour was such a great decision. I learned about a subject I knew nothing about before and Stephanie was so knowledgeable and nice. I can’t recommend this enough.

If you're interested in crime, history, and cannoli, (and who isn't?) Stephanie offers a fact-packed morning tour of a fascinating crime.
