People from all races, and all parts of the planet did what ever they had to do to get their drugs form 116th street. Movie stars and Politicans, just to name a few, at one time or another even stopped by 116th street to buy drugs.Crews from these blocks expanded their drug entire to all different cities, and towns across the United States.American Gangster movie might have some insight how it was in the early days in Harlem dealing drugs, but this is the only book in the world, (I think)that gives detail how these blocks in Harlem expanded the drug trade not only in the city, but throughout other part of the United States.
