The Lizzies were a street gang in New York City around the time of the meeting.

The Lizzies were well-known for being an all-female gang, whose territory was Union Square, Manhattan.

When Cyrus was killed at the meeting, the blame was placed on The Warriors, and a search for The Warriors began. The Lizzies were one of the gangs to confront The Warriors at this time, as they were able to seduce three members of the gang - Vermin, Cochise and Rembrandt - and take them to their hangout. At the hangout, Vermin and Cochise were lulled into a false sense of security, and the Lizzies attempted to kill the trio by drawing handguns on the gang. However, Rembrandt was able to warn his fellow Warriors and they were able to escape, with Rembrandt only receiving a cut on the arm.

Following the meeting in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx, which saw the death of Cyrus, the leader of the Gramercy Riffs, a request was sent out by the Riffs for the Coney Island-based gang The Warriors to be captured. The Lizzies were one of the gangs to respond to this request; at Union Square, a group of Lizzies came across three members of The Warriors: Vermin, Cochise and Rembrandt. The Lizzies led the three members of The Warriors back to their hangout, where they attempted to seduce the trio; Vermin and Cochise were easily seduced by members of the Lizzies. Rembrandt remained uneasy while at the Lizzies' hangout, and was the first to become aware that the Lizzies wanted to kill The Warriors; Rembrandt was able to warn Vermin and Cochise, and the trio were able to escape. Despite their use of handguns and knives, the Lizzies were unable to kill any of The Warriors, although they were able to cut Rembrandt's arm with a knife.[2][3]
