As per your direct request to me Dom Pep, and my promise to you, starting today we will be posting up "Brooklyn guys" as you asked. (no Profaci/Colombo guys as per your directive).

These first four biographies are all Genovese Family members, and each one was a near iconic figure in New York's gangland. Hope you enjoy:

Tomorrow's a new day. We will bang out the Genovese crew first, then on to the next Family of NYC...... all Brooklynese! Lol

He was disliked by many people in the Gambino Family but he was very good in the Construction rackets (confirmed by both Gravano and Mikey Scars).

His knowledge of the construction rackets is the reason why he got made.

A son of the late former Mafia underboss Gennaro “Jerry” Angiulo is facing federal charges alleging he defrauded the government of more than $3.3 million in a payroll tax scheme at his Revere towing business, authorities said.

In a statement Thursday, US Attorney Andrew E. Lelling’s office said the defendant, Gennaro Jay Angiulo, 49, of Nahant and Saugus, was charged by a legal document called an information in federal court in Boston with one count of willful failure to collect and pay over taxes and one count of evading cash transaction reporting requirem

Between the tax years of 2014 through at least 2017, Lelling’s office said, Jay Angiulo allegedly paid a portion of the wages to employees of his company, GJ Towing, in cash under the table, prosecutors said.

“In doing so, Angiulo did not collect, account for or pay over to the IRS required withholding and FICA taxes,” the statement said. “The cash payments to employees were funded, at least in part, by cashing checks from clients of GJ Towing and other third parties in groups totaling not more than $10,000 in a single day.”

Oliviant, all new devices now have decent reading modes. Windows 10 has a "night light" option. Search and adjust to your liking. On android there is a reading mode as well. I did buy a pair of glasses that would eliminate blue light, but end up not using it because it didn't match my eyesight after all.

Thought I'd give you guys a second treat this evening and post up a guy who for me personally was one of the strongest and most respected of Tommy Brown's capo di decina for many decades.

A top garment racketeer, A top prize-fight racketeer. Jimmy was the real deal!

And I'm not talking about Profaci/Colombos either lol )

I wholeheartedly agree with you Don Pep. These are the true guys who form the backbone of Cosa Nostra. The most publicly known guys and bosses, although important, make up just a pimple on an Elephants ass in the full scheme of the Italian underworld. I thoroughly enjoy researching and then writing about these "sleepers" as you so aptly put it. I'm glad you enjoy them.

And yes, I promise to do some Brooklyn guys in the near future. But first I have a whole bunch of things for you guys in the meantime. So besides and including Brooklyn, I have a few surprises in the direction we're gonna go in soon.

I think you're gonna like it. (I hope so anyway) Lol

The Spanish Customs and National Police seized a total of 35,000 kilos of hashish on four sailing boats in one operation. Two sailing boats with hashish sailed under the Dutch flag. Nine Bulgarian and Russian suspects have been arrested in various parts of the Atlantic Ocean. According to Customs, it is the largest hashish catch at sea in the history in Spain.
Police operations took place in five European countries between 24 and 28 September, completing an investigation that took several months. According to the Spanish police, the hash on the four high-end sailing yachts was owned by the same network.

Wednesday is leftovers because Thursday is trash day. Plus Thursday is sometimes evening appointments so we go out to eat that night.

So tonight I still had some leftover spicy chicken nuggets from McDonald’s

All cafés, bars, coffeeshops, restaurants etc here have to close at ten the coming 3 weeks. Masks are now highly recommended inside public places but still not mandatory, we did listen to Fauci who advised us.

The level of our game is not yet what it should be but in Holland we haven't played since early march so that takes a while but at least we get the points. We have a new tough central defender Uros Spajic.

Appollonia's death was one of the only times that I felt any sympathy for Mike. I believe that he truly loved her. She would have been a dutiful,faithful wife who would have given him as as many children as he wanted,made a beautiful home,and above all,wouldn't ask stupid questions like "Miguel,is it true". No doubt Signor Vitelli was well acquainted with Mafia protocol,and would have had a talk with her before the Ceremony. In their world,she hit the jackpot by marrying a man of Michael's status. To have a son-in-law like Mike wasn't anything to sneeze at either. If by chance Signor Vitelli would make an enemy,then they would become Michael's enemy,and then they would fear Vitelli.

It's like bait-and-switch. After Don Vito's death, the feds were unclear on the hierarchy, but after Fish testified, it became evident that Lombardo was the real boss from 1969 to sometime in 1981.

The Yankees really roughed up Bieber yesterday. They had a great game plan and stuck to it: be aggressive in the box, get out to an early lead, and make Bieber uncomfortable. Hopefully they didn't blow their load last night and the bats stay hot because the Yankees do have a tendency to do that. Hopefully Tanaka can close it out tonight.
