Gang 87 is a series of short stories about longshore work gangs on the San Francisco and Oakland waterfronts from 1949 to 1960 and from 1961 until 2010. The longshore gang members are mostly African-American, Sicilian, American Indian, Portuguese, Anglo-Saxon and other ethnic groups.
Gang 87 and other longshore gangs have various misadventures both on the waterfront, San Francisco’s North Beach, the Fillmore District nightclub scene, and other bay area locales, many associated with the waterfront.
Gang 87 has a cast of charters: Walking boss Buffalo, Johnny Boots, The Heap, Larry the Hook, Tony Tuna, The Wolfman, and others. It is the San Francisco and Oakland waterfronts as they were and are now, partly legend and partly myth.
