Special | 29m 30s | Video has closed captioning.
The story of Albany's most notorious gangster is recounted by Albany's most notable storyteller, Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy. In discussing Jack 'Legs' Diamond, Kennedy paints a portrait of a man who embodied the essence of public sentiment on Prohibition, and who may have provoked Albany's most powerful politician to blur the lines between the criminals and the authorities.
