Whyos
The Whyos, a collection of the various post-Civil War street gangs of New York, was the city's dominant street gang during the late 19th century. The gang controlled most of Manhattan from the late 1860s until the early 1890s, when the Monk Eastman Gang defeated the last of the Whyos. The name came from the gang’s cry, which sounded like a bird or owl calling, "Why-oh!"

South Brooklyn Boy: The Whyos and Piker Ryan's Infamous Price List
The Whyos were a street gang from the Five Points section of Manhattan whose center of activities were the old Fourth and Sixth Wards (in present-day geography, roughly from the Two Bridges neighborhood, along the East River, to Lower Chinatown and the Courthouse District). They were formed just after the Civil War from the remnants of an earlier Five Points gang, the Chichesters, and they were the predominant NYC criminal gang from the late 1860's until the early 1890's, when they were supplanted by Monk Eastman's gang (the Eastman's) and Paul Kelly's gang (the Five Points gang).
