NEW YORK — In the 1970s, the mob had a strong presence in New York City.

For many years, law enforcement tried to get a handle on it. The story of this ambitious investigation to take down the Mafia is being told in a Netflix three-part documentary “Fear City: New York vs. the Mafia.”

Former FBI Agent Joe Cantamessa spoke to PIX11 to give a preview of the documentary and what to expect.

“Fear City: New York vs. the Mafia" is currently streaming on Netflix.
