4/10/1925 A gangster moves to Long Island

April 10, 1925.  This date saw the publication of one of the great noir novels, The Great Gatsby. 

Wait a minute.  Noir?  Heavens, no.  It isn't genre dreck, it's literature!

Right.  About a gangster who tries to be more because of his love for a woman, who betrays him, leading to his downfall.

All of which is so noir as to be cliche.
