Jersey City–the Bronx of the Garden State.

I recently met with Patrick Lamb to discuss a legendary Jersey City gambling kingpin named "Newsboy" Moriarty. Lamb had read my
March "Bronx Stroll" about the missing money from the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case, money that may be buried somewhere in the
Bronx. He asked if I knew the story about Moriarty’s money.

In the early 60s, Newsboy Moriarty was known to keep a ton of cash on hand from his lucrative gambling racket. Back in the pre-Lotto
days, there was a lot of geld to be made running numbers. Legend has it that Newsboy was kidnapped by some Jersey City hoods and
tortured with a blowtorch for the whereabouts of his stash. Moriarty held his tongue.

"He had a bigger mob than the Mafia behind him," Lamb told me. "He had the Jersey City police force as his back-up."

The end came for the Newsboy in 1962 when $2,400,000 was discovered in the trunk of his 1949 Plymouth, parked in a small garage.
