LOL well they have been calling themselves that since the 60's and 70's and you'll find old men saying they were members of the LEF with canes these days. They think they are badasses but don't take their rolaids away or they will cry.

Gee, I haven't heard of that bunch in forever. Didn't even know any of them were still around. Guess iron workers never die.

They USED to be, years ago. More accurately a bunch of ragtags hanging around together who had nothing to do but wander around. They thought they were tough as nails with their bad-ass can of spray paint.

I've heard of the "Lower Eastside Fighting Eagles" boxing team, but I guess the "Federation" was before my time. I heard someone mention ironworkers, though, which I have dabbled in. If you are looking for trouble ironworkers are truly the wrong folks to start it with.

Wow, they were so tough they needed to be in a gang with other tough guys? They must've done a lot of good. Oh wait... The LES is still a disgusting dump! A bunch of greasers who patted themselves on the back in between gulps of warm Pabst Blue Ribbon, pretending to be masters of the universe.

Um, nope not really. I moved here (yeah, I know, my mistake) in the late '80s. They were wannabes then, and nothing now.

My husband boxed for the LEF. He won the golden gloves and a few others. But he is all growed up now and a big boy who has to work instead of out playing with his friends :)

In any ethnic neighborhood people band together for their common advancement and protection. It has been that way since the days when the first immigrants got off the boat at Ellis Island, the italians, the Irish, the Polish all still have their own clubs etc. Same with the blacks. Cultural diversity is our greatest strengh as a country, our enemies in WW2 made the mistake of thinking a country made of so many different people could not stand united. You sound like you are making the very same mistake. And tell me, how much of Eries resources go into developing the lower east side, other than to have it crawling with cops? Put on the bozo nose, please.

Ah! Another jackhole advocate of hyphenated Americanism.
Yeah, I would agree with your stupid idea if it weren't for the millions of Americans who banded together as a f'in community instead of a "gang" of wanna be tough guys?
Why is the lower east side crawling with cops? Crime and the inability, nee refusal, to integrate into civil society and accept the uniqueness of being an American.
Your metally handicap view is the biggest problem facing American race issues today. Let me tell you where you can stuff that bozo nose. Tim Leary - another f'in loser he'll bent on destroying America by advocating drug use - among kids! Yeah, hard to take a single word you type seriously.
