Irving Waxey Gordon WexlereBook - 2015
Waxey Gordon's beer empire extended throughout upstate New York, into Pennsylvania and to several New Jersey counties. It even reached as far as St. Louis and Chicago in the midwest. Gordon was raised in a tenement on Manhattan's East Side. He grew up thudding and became a pickpocket. He was an active member of one of several rival gangs there. Waxey's beer distribution was centered in Elmira, where the racketeer had once been imprisoned in a reformatory. Later he returned to the town and took over an old brewery to run his beer operations.--Provided by publisher.
