Kansas City Mob Tour App

February 2, 2015

‘Kansas City Mob Tour’ is the first app on the market to explore Kansas City’s dangerous and shocking mob history. It was created by a former cop turned lawyer who once investigated one of the city’s most notorious Italian-American mafias, La Cosa Nostra.

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI—For the first time, history enthusiasts now have an opportunity to get up close and personal with the city’s heavily mafia oriented heritage. Best of all, they can do it  from the comfort of their smartphones.

“This app is very educational because it tracks the real history of the mob, and how these gangsters impacted the community as a whole,” explained Gary Jenkins, the app’s creator.


For outsiders, Kansas City may seem like an unlikely place for mob activity; however, they will be in for quite a surprise. The app shows and explains where mafia members once lived, drank, gambled, plotted and killed.

“For most people who are 40 or older, they will remember the series of mafia-related killings and bombings during the late 1970s and the middle 1980s. For anyone younger, they’ll be shocked to know the mafia’s close connection to the city.”

The inspiration for launching the app came to Jenkins after producing a documentary film, Gangland Wire, about the Kansas City Mafia.

“When I do screenings and talks about La Cosa Nostra mafia in Kansas City, I’m often asked how to find the sites where these mob guys lived, did business, committed crimes and even socialized,” stated Jenkins. “That’s why I decided to create an app that contains everything they ever needed to know about the mafia in this city.”

Kansas City Mob Tour was produced by Jenkins, a mafia expert, who once prowled the same areas that the app directs the user to visit. The app also contains links to short videos taken from two documentaries about the mob in Kansas City, Gangland Wire and Black Hand Strawman.

“This app is perfect for anyone who loves history or for anyone who has ties to the area,” stated Jenkins. “I like the idea of using modern technology to entertain and educate others.”

The app can be purchased on Apple and Google Play for $1.99.  To learn more about the app, watch the short video below.
