Fostering a reputation as a sought after gun for hire and bootlegger next week. We'll follow oban out into the Nevada desert as he opens the Flamingo a move. That would change sin city forever in the summer of nineteen forty. Six Ben Siegel was a forty year old handsome knockout in a silk suit. His Blue Eyes popped underneath the brim of a matching hat. He was dead set on finishing construction on his dream. Hotel and casino the Flamingo. Oh but in the middle of the nineteen forties the US was experiencing a major shortage of building materials because of a boom in housing construction as world. War Two veterans flooded back into the country. Many of them with foreign brides. It became apparent that there weren't enough places for them to live the high demand for construction. Shen materials prioritized residential over commercial that meant raw materials like concrete wood copper and steel. Were incredibly the hard to come by for a project like the Flamingo. So been bought a plane. He instructed Robert Rupert A World War Two fighter pilot in his his employees to fly the plane all over the country looking for construction materials. He wanted them before anyone else could get their hands on them. Rupert protested tested. He knew no matter how fast he arrived at a supplier he wouldn't be able to get his hands on materials they simply weren't available but ben wasn't done yet been dumped a suitcase onto his desk. He unsnapped at and reveal stacks of cash inside one hundred thousand. I was in dollars which rupert should use to bribe suppliers rupert hesitated with this really work. He knew he couldn't say no. Not After Ben had bought him his first plane rupert looked back to his smiling boss and nodded the pile of cash worked like a charm charm while the rest of the country struggled to find enough materials to build badly needed housing. Ben Segel's contractors had all the copper INS deal they needed for the Flamingo. Ben Siegel New Hunter Flex to get things done and he knew how to do it in style. But with the materials in hand hand he still had another obstacle to hurdle been wanted his oasis to go up fast however that required getting around construction and licensing regulations relations so he turned to his closest government. Ally the portly senior Nevada. Senator Pat McCarron. Ben Bragged that he got got very good cooperation. From Karen. During the flamingos construction in exchange for some bribes when a government agency withheld authorisation. Shen for the Flamingos Construction August. Nineteen forty-six Ben said McCarron was going to pound the table with his fists to make it clear. The state of Nevada wanted the hotel constructed but bins best asset wasn't the money he slapped on the table for McCarron or the violent reputation shen that followed him from New York bins. Best asset was men like Rupert People. He could legitimately trust. Ben Couldn't by trust trust can only be built over time and over many shared illegal ventures his most trusted allies on the Flamingo. Project had ben in business with him. Since the beginning of his criminal career Mo said way. And Meyer Lansky Ben. I teamed up with most said way when they were running a protection. Racket on the streets of Manhattan by nineteen forty six said way was a balding fifty two euro Jewish gangster. Who ran the old cortes? It's a Vegas Casino. Owned by Ben Siegel said way was bins man on the ground in the desert it was said way who I got his foot in the door of the Flamingo. When it was just an empty lot he bailed out the properties first owner after his gambling debts grew unmanageable? And when the time was right he brought ben onto the project said way was also on the board of Directors of the Nevada Project Corporation. The company been founded to funnel cash cash into the Flamingo Project as a member of the board said way track the company spending and stood to take part of the prophet when the Flamingo opened another stockholder on the Nevada. Project and primary investor in the Flamingo was Meyer Lansky. Ben and Lansky were more than just just business associates. They were brothers. Their relationship went all the way back to the mean streets of New York City a time when every immigrant coming from Europe pass through Ellis Island and when the first generation of gangsters control the underworld Benjamin Siegel was born on February brewery twenty eighth nineteen o six and grew up. In New York's lower east side. He was the second of five children born to his Jewish immigrant. Parents Max and Jennie Segal. The SEGEL's came to New York in nineteen. Oh three they hailed from Galicia a province in the austro-hungarian empire at at the time about five thousand people in the area perished from starvation or malnutrition. Every year the Segel's knew that staying in Austria Hungary meant risking screen death. The conditions in New York were a little better but not by much. Max was a machine operator later in a pants factory. He worked eighteen hours a day and brought home an average of five hundred and thirty dollars a year like many immigrants. Living in New York. Money was always an issue. Everyone worked in order to survive even of surviving men living in a tiny mold. Ridden apartment without a private but toilet. By the Time Ben was eleven he had dropped out of school and worked a steady job with the United States trucking company but as he was driving up and down the streets he realized there was a quicker method of making money. When ben was growing up street gangs were practically mandatory for boys days since eighteen? Fifty gangs flourished along with the influx of immigrants from different ethnic groups on the lower east side. There were Italian gangs Irish Irish gangs and Jewish gangs been of course enlisted in a Jewish gang. A former gang member. From Ben's time reminisced about the streets. It's of New York. The gang was romance. Adventure had the zest of banditry the thrill of camp life and the lure of hero worship the gang gave young Ben Sense of pride power and purpose. The warfare between the groups taught him. That success depended on being harder. Crueler and smarter than everyone else Ben took to it. Naturally he and his fellow members served as protectors of their district against the Irish Irish and the Italians. He quickly built a reputation as a fearless street brawler but the primary draw for been was the fast money around nineteen twenty when Ben was just in his early teens he and two other boys entered alone office not far from their neighborhood. Having already case the place they knew the loan officers kept bags of change easily accessible on their desks as they serviced customers been in his conspirators snatched. Watch the coin bags and darted back out the doors onto the street scattering in every direction Ben recalled fondly. I had to run like health for about ten blocks carrying two bags full of small change before the Guy Chasing us ran out of breath and quit. It might have been better if they caught me because after that I was game for anything Ben was hooked. Though he continued to work a variety of jobs. It was crime that became his driving. Force crime brought him money. Respect travel women and his best friends including his lifelong friend. Meyer Lansky in their first. Meeting has become the stuff of legend and there are several different versions of the stories circulating in Gangland Lore what follows is the version landscape has told around nineteen twenty a group of local hoodlums. Drunks were in the streets playing a game of craps. It's been in Lansky were among the participants the stakes were high and that meant everyone in. Attendance was on a hair trigger at one one point. Someone accused another of unfair play. That accusation was all it took for weapons to be drawn knives iron in bars and even guns in a few seconds. The craps game escalated into an all out brawl. The police arrived within minutes Lansky was making his exit when he noticed. been fighting with another boy over a revolver Lansky knew that only an idiot Sheila Mazal which shoot with the cops insight instead of running Lansky stopped and pulled ben out of the fray. He told him you're you're crazy. Drop the gun and run as the cops inched closer and closer. They knew they were running out of time. Ben was torn. Did he stay and fight for the gun or give up and save his own skin.

The brand launched a campaign called the do nited states intending to celebrate the uniqueness of all fifty states is it designed bottle specific to each state and promised prizes to soda drinkers who collected all fifty but it made one glaring geographical error over on one map.
