Anyone know if that is Jerry Catena to the immediate right of Zwillman? I've seen a similar b/w photo of Zwillman and Catena, the future Genovese leader. He was one of Longy's lieutenants around this time.

Re: Rare photos - 12/11/11 02:29 PM

Morello was the boss of bosses at the time when he was sent to prison in 1910. When he was released in 1920, he found his gang reduced to a very few members. Most of them had been killed or had joined other Mafia groups.
Morello did also find himself being condemned to death by the new boss of bosses, Tata D´Aquila for some reason unkown.
Together with a few loyal followers, he joined the Joe Masseria group which of course later became the Genovese Crime Family.

Yes I would advise everyone on here to read "the first family" which is extremely detailed account of the Morello gang, well researched and a must if your an enthusiast.

Judging by his hair color, it must have been the late 1940s or early '50s, and that would make it in Italy.

The cleveland mob pictures isn't all cleveland mob guys, joe profaci, joe magliocco and vincent Mangano are pictured there. They got arrested when they went there for a meeting, but are not part of the cleveland mob obviously.

Those clothes look straight from the 90's. That and we are talking about Italian/Italian-American criminals. Race is a more discussed thing here in the States, especially in the politically correct, pre-9/11 1990's

I thought Cali was the guy on the far left, the guy in the middle being insignificant to our discussion and Nicchi being the young guy on the far right, closest to the camera.

Off the top of my head I knew Cali was born sometime in the late 50's, maybe '61-'63 and Nicchi was definitely born sometime after 1980

At the time of this picture (2003), Nicchi and Mandala were visiting NY from Italy. You may not know the middle guy (Nicola Mandala), but he was not insignificant.

Tommaso Buscetta (Palermo, July 13, 1928- New York, April 2, 2000) was one of the first members of the Sicilian Mafia that broke the code of silence and helped authorities prosecute hundreds of Mafia members both in Italy and the U.S. In return for his many testimonies he was allowed to live in the U.S. and was placed in the Witness Protection Program. He died of cancer in 2000.



In 1909, Giuseppe Calicchio, an immigrant from Naples, began work for the Morello gang in Highland, New York as a printer and engraver of counterfeit Canadian and US currency. In 1910, the printing plant was raided and Calicchio along with his boss Giuseppe Morello and 12 other gang members were arrested. Calicchio received 17 years hard labor and a $600 fine, but was released in 1915.



In 1908, Antonio Cecala was a counterfeiter working for Giuseppe Morello. His career was short lived after he was convicted in 1909 of conterfeiting and sentenced to 15 years and a $1,000 fine.



Phillip Leonetti (b. March 27, 1953) seemed to pattern his life after his uncle, Philadelphia crime family boss Nicodemo Scarfo. In the 1980s, Leonetti was moving through the family crime ranks as a mob hitman, capo and then underboss to Scarfo.
After receiving a 55-year prison sentence in 1988 on murder and racketeering charges, Leonetti decided to work with the federal government as an informant. His testimony resulted in the convictions of high-ranking mobsters including John Gotti. In return for his cooperation he was released from prison after serving only five years.

Tony Salerno....him with that damn cane. You had to see him in the courtroom during the commission trial. He was really playing up the 'I'm an invalid' role. Thinking back on it today, he reminds me now of Uncle Leo in Seinfeld: "I'm an old man, I don't know what I'm doing". grin

Sorry, my Klan membership had been revoked and I was just lookin' to hate.

Remember that episode of The Sopranos where Chrissy, Sil, and Tony are sittin' down in a fancy lobby and Sil and Tony ask where's Chrissy been; and Christopher replies, "...my new goomah...she's black...I didn't want Paulie bustin' my balls, you know how he is with his race shit..."

To which Tony and Sil chuckle their fat guts into hilarity. That picture reminded me of that. Hollywood never turns down an opportunity to show strife between Italian-Americans and blacks.

He aint made smile hes a old guy. Anyway, i saw him in a couple of more pictures standing with Jackir Nose.

In lack of better things to do (I should get a life I guess...), I managed to identify three of the guys in the lineup.
2nd from left is Benny "Bugsy" Siegel, 6th from left is Louis Kravitz (a narcotics peddler) and 8th from left is James Feraco (a later member of the Mangano Family, murdered in 1940 or 1941.)
However, this gang doesn´t seem to be what we know today as "Murder Inc". The picture seems to have been taken in or around mid 1920´s. Note how young Siegel looks. "Murder Inc" was active in the 1930´s and if I´m not mistaken, Siegel was never arrested with members of the "Murder Inc" gang. I think that this is actually members of the "Meyer and Bug" gang, headed by Meyer Lansky and Benny Siegel.
I could be wrong though....

Just found out...
1st from left is Joseph Rosen (an actual "Murder Inc" murder victim in 1936),
3rd from left is Harry Teitelbaum.
4th from left is Louis Buckhous (with the eye patch) and
5th from left is Harry "Big Greenie" Greenberg, murdered in 1939.

The picture of Gotti with the "double chin" isn't from his last arrest. His last arrest was at the Ravenite in December of 1990. I think that picture is from earlier in the year, when he was on trial for the O'Connor shooting.

I mean the picture with Junior behind him. It can't be his last arrest because he was denied bail in that case, and the picture of him in the suit being trailed by Junior is clearly a residential shot taken in Queens.

I really don´t know. But no historical fact (what I know of) suggests that Terranova had a glass eye.

DeNiro´s best performances as an actor came as a mafiaguy. I´m sure that he met a few wiseguys over the years. Many of them seems to admire DeNiro for his work. Which is fully understandable if you ask me. But, let us not draw hasty conclusions about DeNiro´s mob ties.
This picture was taken in connection with DeNiro prepering himself for his role in "Analyze This". Well, that´s the official story anyway.

For sure, I mean. The mob wasn't taking pictures with Frank Sinatra because he was their business partner. They loved and admired the guy. Same goes for Deniro. When Jimmy Burke heard he was being portrayed by him, he was grateful to be played by such a skilled actor. That seems to be the mob's general consensus, that he's just awesome. As for a mafia film actor who really tries to be mobbed up, look up Tony Darrow.

Absolutely, Hairy. And let's not forget that these guys are hardly bastions of liberalism. I remember reading a few years back where a few mob guys were picked up on a wiretap praising DeNiro as an actor, but ripping him apart for being married to a black woman. Their choice of words was pretty crude.

Of course not. The guy is a capo for God's sake. Who's gonna have the balls to badmouth him? But DeNiro ain't Frank Cali.

I couldn't care less anyway. I'm as liberal as they come in that area.

Re: Rare photos - 05/16/12 05:48 PM

Of course there is a difference in who they marry, as opposed to who's their gf. Cali' would have never married a black woman, like DeNiro has.

And really, what do any mafioso care who DeNiro married? He's no real life gangster and in real life he's about as Italian as Chef Boyardee, so what are they hung up about?

Not rare, but this one says a lot to me. Here's Russell Bufalino presumably at his office. Seated next to him is 'Angelo Sciandra, a capo and father to Ed Sciandra. David Osticco (Underboss) is all the way to Bufalino's right, he looks to be in workman's clothes.



Next one has the same three figures. Bufalino in front, leaving court in 1959. Enjoy.

That is a rare photo. I have never seen it before.

Bufalino was quite a character. In 1977, he was convicted of extortion after threatening a guy who owed Bufalino 25.000 dollars. This guy testified against him and claimed he had been physically harmed. Bufalino did not seem to regret his actions though. He told the court: "If you had to deal with an animal like that Judge, you´d have done the same damn thing."
Posted By: BarrettM

Re: Rare photos - 05/16/12 10:12 PM

Right. I personally find him to be the most interesting gangster throughout history, mostly for his business model. He is the epitome of secrecy really, a 40 man family that operated as much on a national level as a local level. Who would have known? He had territory in Florida just like the 5 families and weaseled control over Buffalo towards the end of Maggaddino's reign. Here's some more.

EDIT: Cool, I'm a capo now.

Agreed! I love the rare pics. Here is one my favorites from Life Magazine Feb 14 1969 on page 56: Buster Wortman's funeral. This picture has 2 of the bosses of the St. Louis family (Vitale and Giordano) and the deceased east side boss (Wortman, part of the Chicago family) in the same picture. Throw in Louis Shoulders, one of the most corrupt cops in the history of law enforcement.

Interesting tidbit - the author of this article, won the Pulitzer for a later report on the relationship between St. Louis family and the Mayor, AJ Cervantes, his Crime Commissioner and Morris Shenker, mob lawyer. The local paper would not print the article, because the editor didn't believe the story and allegations. It was later learned that the editor did not print it under pressure from the Mayor's office and that the FBI leaked the whole story to Walsh. Life published the story, and the Mayor sued them for libel. He lost his suit.

Both articles have great pics of old time St. Louis gangsters.

In case you’re wondering how prison has been treating ex-mobster Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, here’s the most recent photo taken of the imprisoned serial killer.

The 65-year-old Gravano, who snitched out John Gotti and other fellow hoodlums, is serving a 19-year stretch for an Arizona narcotics conviction (he is scheduled for release in early-2019).

The former Gambino underboss, who is reportedly suffering from Graves’ disease, was photographed by the Arizona Department of Corrections.

"This FBI photo, taken on June 11, 1979, at a game farm in Dexter shows convicted mob boss Jack Tocco (center) along with Vito Giacalone (left) and Anthony Corrado."



This surveillance photo was taken the day that Jack Tocco was appointed to replace Zerrilli as leader of the Detroit LCN. Great story providing background can be read here:

"Trunk music". The bodies of Jasper Campise and Johnny Gattuso, throats cut and stuffed in to the trunk of car. Retribution for shooting Outfit associate Ken Eto in the head (3 times) and still failing to kill him.



Left to right, partners in crime Chuckie Nicoletti and 'Milwaukee Phil' Alderisio. Chuckie Nicoletti was one of the Outfit's most prolific hitmen, and Alderisio designed them a car specifically made to conceal guns and hide from police. They were also Spilotro's accomplices during the whole head crushing vise thing.

Eighty four years ago, today, July 1, 1928, Frankie Yale was shot to death in Brooklyn, NY. The body of noted gang chief Frankie Yale, who was born Francesco Ioele, lies beside his automobile in front of 923 44th St (between New Utrecht & 9th Aves), after Yale was shot to death from a pursuing automobile. Yale's car crashed into a house and he was thrown out of the car.

Billy Batts is a mystery. All we know of him is what Henry Hill told us. His real name seems to have been William Devino. I have been looking for him for years in newspaper clippings, databases of all kinds and stuff but haven´t found anything. How sure can we be that he even existed?

What was the original source for his real name? I first saw this "DeVino" thing on the Wikipedia page for Tommy DeSimone, which includes the following somewhat questionable anecdote:

DeSimone committed what is believed to have been his first murder on March 15, 1968. He was walking down the street with Hill when DeSimone spotted Howard Goldstein, a passing pedestrian, unknown to either gangster. Hill recalls DeSimone turning to him and saying, "Hey Henry, watch this." DeSimone yelled, "Hey cocksucker!" and pulled out a .38 caliber pistol, and shot and killed Goldstein. Hill exclaimed, "That was cold-blooded, Tommy!" DeSimone replied, "Well, I'm a mean cat."

I´ve just learned, with great help from posters on another forum, that William Devino´s name actually was William J. Bentvena. That figures why there has been so hard to come over any info on Billy Batts. I have no clue why Pileggi or Hill named him Devino in the book "Wiseguy". Considering he was dead by the time when the book was written, I can´t imagine the publishers were scared of future lawsuits. (I don´t know.)
There is info on Bentvena on the internet, but thus far I haven´t been able to locate any pictures of him. Would be cool to know how he looked like!

Now I´m not so sure if the name "William Devino" actually appeared in the book. I don´t have the book here. So it may be that Hill, who perhaps never knew Billy Batts´s real name, threw "William Devino" out in an interview while being drunk or high, after the book had been published.
Or the original source was just a confused kid, writing articles on Wikipedia. smile

The picture was taken in connection with them arriving at a federal court in Miami, Florida to answer questions in front of a grand jury in 1969. The grand jury wanted to ask them why they have been conducting secret meetings at a Miami Beach motel. The mobsters gave only their names and addresses and refused to answer further questions. Vincent Alo and Meyer Lansky had also been subpoenad to this one.

Here´s another picture of Ricci, taken in 1955:

I have been looking but haven´t found any proof. Somewhere in the back of my mind I do remember reading that they were made. And mentioned in the same sentence was (if I remember correctly) their initiation was a "thank you" for a job well done. (The Roy DeMeo killing.)
I think both of them had a good relationship with the Luccheses. Especially Joey whose brother Patty was a Lucchese member.

You would think Al D'arco and Casso would of told the Feds when they flipped, perhaps they did. I was wondering HK, the Gemini twins were convicted in 1989? Were these charges all from their Gambino days under DeMeo? They were free for 6 years after DeMeo was murdered, did they carry on murdering after they left the Gemini crew?

It´s complicated...

In 1984, the government filed a 78 count indictment naming twenty-four defendants, including Senter and Testa, and alleging eleven different conspiracies. So it was a massive and a complexed trial.
Initially both Senter and Testa were acquitted (or in some cases the jury were unable to reach a verdict) of several charges including the car theft operation, murders and participation in dismemberment of victims.

http://findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/fac.19880216_0040987.c02.htm/qx

I don´t know what charges they were found guilty of. But it seems to me that they were tried again, a couple of years later on the same charges and were convicted of racketeering and 10 counts of murder. After a string of appeals, in 1989 they were finally sent to federal prison to serve life. I believe these charges all stemmed from their crimes commited while working for DeMeo.

According to Anthony Casso, Testa and Senter were responsible for the Vladimir Reznikov murder in 1986. If Casso is telling the truth (and I have no resaon to doubt it in this case) it does look like the "Gemini Twins" carried on murdering even after the DeMeo period.

You've got almost all the answers to these except for the youngest one in the photo to Scarfos left. I believe that's Leonetti's son. In the Primerime interview he did, he talked about his son and they showed this exact picture zoomed in on the kid with his face blurred out.

Re: Rare photos - 07/23/12 05:34 AM

No he was not named in the indictment. They did bring him up during the trial numerous times though, but Lumbo and the German were the only 2 guys from North of Roosevelt who actually got pinched. (Little Jimmy and Mickey ran Cicero). For people to think Mr. Difronzo was in any shape or form cooperating because he avoided the secrets trial is insane. Why not Sarno? Or Toots? Or the builder? Or better yet, Pizza Al (who was still alive at the time of the indictment) Those fellas have been around for ages and weren't named either.

The whole secrets trial was based on two things: 1. The Calabreses. The US attorney here in Chicago had a hard-on for Frank/Nick going back decades, and once they got Frank Jr's pathetic ass to cooperate, they new they'd have nick because he was weak and couldn't stomach life in prison.

2. The Spilotro bros. killing and sefiert's murder had been haunting Mitch Mars and those guys the same as Calabrese, if not more. They wanted the german and joey real bad since the 70s-80s because of those two things. Also, the fact that nick squealed and said little jimmy was there ended up being a bonus because he had just been named street boss. What better headline than to take a "boss" off the street? I've heard conflicting stories from people throughout the years as to whether jimmy actually drove mike and tony that day, or was just there, but one thing I've always heard was that John D was NOT present. The southside guys were the ones who really had a problem with Tony and Mikey.

And to answer you question about the video, its from '09 I believe. I used to eat at the restaurant "The loon cafe" with family all the time (grew up in River Grove), and it closed down around 2010 I believe?

There has always been the belief in Chicago that the Feds have been working on "Operation Family Secrets 2 Trial" aimed at the DiFronzos. You have to wonder what Nick & Frank (Jr.) Calabrese told the Feds about the two DiFronzo brothers. Not much was said about them during the 2007 Family Secrets trial.

Re: Rare photos - 07/25/12 12:12 AM

Wouldn't surprise me at all if another round of indictments came thru in the next couple years. But really, John-D would pretty much be the main target. Maybe Joe the Builder, but he's been sick and laying low. Used to see him around quite a bit at various restaurants/bars, but not anymore. Sarno is gone for awhile, plus Tornabene passed away a couple years ago, so the big name guys are sorta gone. There are a few guys remaining who wield power, for which I won't name names, but they're on those charts.

Francis Turatello


Born in Asiago, the son of an unmarried seamstress living at Milan and returned to his hometown during the war, according to many sources was the natural son of Italian-American mob boss Frank Coppola said Frank three fingers. He moved with his mother in Milan (Lambrate district) since childhood, amateur boxer in his youth, makes its appearance in the criminal Milan as a small car thief, and then move gradually to impose his personality, taking on roles of increasing leading up to reach the head of a criminal gang (consisting mostly of immigrants from Catania) addict to the control of the gambling dens of the city and the exploitation of prostitution (activity in the period of greatest success invoice tens of millions of lire a night ). He also participates in several robberies and kidnappings, with the complicity of boss of the Banda dei Marsigliesi Albert Bergamelli.Turatello is famous for the fierce rivalry, born from his youth, with Renato Vallanzasca, which results in a bloody feud with the many victims of both fronts. Later, after the arrest of both Vallanzasca and Turatello takes place a gradual rapprochement between the two friends shake that (among other Turatello will witness the wedding of Vallanzasca in marriage with Giuliana Brusa held in prison).There is still debate today on the position within Cosa Nostra of Turatello, but it is believed that during his criminal career was often in contact with senior members of the Neapolitan Camorra clans and families in Sicily. The figure of Turatello also appears in many dark episodes in the history of Italy of the seventies, including the kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro and some criminal acts done by the Magliana Gang. After a lengthy fugitive was arrested April 2 1977 in fairly random Cordusio Square in Milan, tried for a long list of offenses is sentenced to a lengthy prison who is serving under the regime of rigorous imprisonment. Turatello was killed August 17, 1981 in prison in Sardinia Badu'e Carros by Pasquale Barra, Vincenzo Andraous, Antonino Faro, Adriano Danilo and Salvatore Maltese in a very brutal: will be stabbed and disemboweled, and his heart checked out and bitten. The motive for this murder is still mysterious, but certainly an end so terrible - and the consequent destruction of the body - revealing that he had committed an offense very great. Some sources date back to the New Organized Camorra order the murder, but there still remain reliable sources. Francis is buried at Turatello Monumental Monza.

Mafia boss Vincenzo Di Carlo (1911-1979)



Police Commissioner Cataldo Tandoj and his wife, Leila Motta

Born in 1911, Vincenzo Di Carlo had belonged to the Fascist party until 1943, being an active member and leader of the GIL, the Fascist Youth movement. Once again it becomes clear how many criminal Mafiosi had been perfectly amalgamated with the Fascist structure, which was so similar to the Mafia. Under the Allies, DI Carlo was once again at the top: he was made responsible for the requisition of cereals and later became a member of the Raffadali junta. In 1950 he was given an honorary judiciary role, that of “giudice conciliatore”. In 1957 he was made head of the local section of the Christian Democratic Party. But the Carabinieri wrote (1960): “Di Carlo is the head of the local Mafia, which is made up of eight individuals; almost all have been indicted for crimes and have a criminal background. All these, including Di Carlo, operate within the Christian Democratic party and under its political protection move in silence and with total tranquility, as is the custom of the Mafia.”
On 30 March 1960, on one of these evenings when Agrigento begins to feel the heat coming, Police Commissioner Cataldo Tandoj (who had been head of the Squadra Mobile and was on the point of being transferred to Rome) and his wife were taking a stroll. It was late and dark. Suddenly from a side alley a man jumped out and opened fire: Tandoj died like a Mafia boss. A passing student was hit by a bullet and died too. Gossip quickly reached the police. Word spread that the handsome Mrs Tandoj was the mistress of Professor Mario La Loggia, a psychiatrist, brother of the former Christian democrat president of Sicily. Agrigento was described (in Sicilian and national papers) as a city of sin and orgies. La Loggia’s wife, the “insatiable” Danika, was accused of having an illicit relationship with Mrs Tandoj as well.
The Mafia masterminded the rumour campaign, and Mario La Loggia and Mrs Tandoj were arrested and imprisoned for several months. But a diary of Tandoj’s was found, and the truth came out (the diary later disappeared). Many police officers could have guessed it, because all at Agrigento knew that Commissioner Tandoj had close relationship with the cosche, both with Genco Russo’s and especially with Vincenzo Di Carlo’s, at Raffadali.
During the Fifties Tandoj had discovered much evidence against Di Carlo, but instead of publicly incriminating the boss of Raffadali he had blackmailed him. TO the prosecuting magistrates he had only told a small part of Di Carlo’s story. Although there had been strong pressures from some of the police, the Carabinieri and the judiciaries to arrest two suspects, Giuseppe Terrazino and Vincenzo Di Carlo, Tandoj had protected them and refused to arrest them. A policeman (known only to Tandoj) who was making inquiries about Terrazino had been attacked and badly wounded one night. “But in the last months of his life”, wrote Senator Pafundi in a document which until 1970 had been kept secret, “Tandoj had become helpless with the vast cosca of Raffadali and could not put a stop to the many murders when the association broke up, due to the rivalry of private interests”. And with Tandoj about to be transferred to Rome, the Raffadali cosca was no longer sure of his silence.
The La Loggia brothers were the nucleus of the Fanfani faction in the Agrigento region. For some Mafia quarters, it was also useful to discredit the La Loggias and, in so doing, to prevent the former head of the Region from becoming the head of the Bank of Sicily. When the truth came out it was too late: Mrs Tandoj and Mario La Loggia had been drowned in a sea of muddy gossip.
IN 1962 it was the heads of the Agrigento police, Salvatore Guarino, who accused Di Carlo. This was due to the fact that Di Carlo had been formally accused. Guarino reported:

The giudice conciliatore of Raffadali, Vincenzo Di Carlo, is a notorious Mafia figure in Raffadali. He has belonged to that criminal organization for over ten years and I believe that he is implicated in – or at least he is in the know about the authors of – the majority of those terrible crimes which have been committed in that territory. During the investigation for the murder of Police Commissar Tandoj… extremely damaging evidence has emerged against Di Carlo, which proves his affiliation to the Mafia of Raffadali.

Finally a trial took place. In concluded with Di Carlo’s life sentence, and his immediate appeal. The judges had declared that “the mandate of killing Tandoj was decided in even higher quarters’ than Di Carlo’s cosca.

Dwalin2011 Interesting post and good pics you put up there. Interesting to me, anyway, because Agrigento is rarely mentioned on this forum.

Interesting as well is, just over the past few months, governor of Agrigento Province was arrested for mafia association. This was/is big news down there. That province is still the most heavily mafia entrenched in all of Sicily.

Re: Rare photos - 07/27/12 01:39 AM

Thanks for the appreciation. I will later borrow some books from the library that have other photos of trials and mafia bosses from the 60s and 70s which are better quality than the ones I posted (I took them from an online Italian newspaper archive). I will upload them when I have them.

Yes, Agrigento (Trapani also) is considered one of the zones with the strongest mafia influence. I read the informants said that if it’s evaluated in numbers, then Palermo would be 10, Agrigento and Trapani 8, Caltanissetta 6 and Catania 4.
I wonder why they didn't even consider other provinces. For example, the mafia in the Messina province is said to be quite strong.
By the way, the arrested governor of Sicily, Salvatore Cuffaro, is also from Raffadali like Di Carlo.

Sounds good Dwalin. I have a lot of pics as well, but none that should be put up in public, but I'd like to see what you get a hold of, too.

I was going to go back and edit to add that Salvatore Cuffaro was also from Raffadali, but I got sidetracked, but yes..that's pretty interesting. I think so anyway.

No Messina is not nearly as strong as the others, but if you see recent events, there is a lot going on there lately. And Agrigento is all over the news again as well. Lots of stuff going on there. I'm sure you're aware.

Look forward to your pics and posts when you get to them. Thanks.

It may not be as strong as Palermo, Agrigento and Trapani, but it must at least be comparable to Catania, because one of the Messina bosses, Giovanni Sindoni, was able to put pressure on the boss of Catania, Benedetto Santapaola, when he was going to kill the journalist Beppe Alfano in 1993. He was killed near the place where Santapaola was hiding, this was dangerous for him as it attracted unwanted attention, but he couldn't refuse Sindoni.
This was in 1993 though. Maybe Messina got weaker later. Sindoni is still free though, unfortunately and not even a fugitive. Too many powerful friends in law enforcement.

I didn't know that. But then why didn't Santapaola just laugh and tell Sindoni to shoot himself instead of doing what he asked and risking arrest by having Alfano murdered near his own hideout?

nitto santapaola was hiding in barcellona at that time and sindoni is also a powerful freemason member but the murder of that journalist was worth also for santapaola coz he was inquiring into interest of both local and catania families
by the way barcellona has not any boss in the commission but it answers to santapaola family like most of the eastern crime families

The Neapolitan Navy Street gang were members of the Camorra based in Brooklyn and Coney Island. The gang fought against other crime families for control of the New York rackets but was decimated when its own members turned against them in 1917

The former Gambino underboss, who is reportedly suffering from Graves’ disease, was photographed by the Arizona Department of Corrections.


Sammy Gravano and John Gotti broke the golden rule of organization. Vincent Gigante (the last of the old schoolers) wanted them to pay. They've both payed. Why these men of little honor are worshiped is beyond me. I guess hype and media attention mask over deceit and dishonor.

The picture was found in the "New York Police Files On The Mafia"-book by Charlie Carr which is a collection of New York´s five Families files, arrest records and mugshots from the 1940s and 1950s.
According to his rapsheet, Plate was arrested numerous of times for robbery and in 1937 was sentenced to a 5-10 year prison term. He also had arrests for felonious assault and "frequenting house of ill fame" and "frequenting gaming house".

George Filippone later rose to the rank of a captain within the Genovese Family, heading a crew based out of Manhattan´s Lower East Side if I´m correctly informed. It´s hard to find any pictures of him, he seems to have been extremely camera shy...

Just a couple of sidenotes...
The man enjoying a tomato soup is not Dutch Schultz, but one of his men. Schultz enjoyed the restaraunt´s bathroom when being shot. He died a couple of days later.

Schultz´s lawyer, Richard "Dixie" Davis, is most probably responsible for the myth of the purge, claiming more than 30 old mustache petes were knocked out across the country the day Maranzano was killed. This number snowballed later into 50 and more by newspapermen and authors, apparently because they had nothing better to write about.
Dixie claimed he had learned about the purge from one of Schultz´s gunmen Bo Weinberg.

Yeah. Louis Russo was murdered in NJ the same day as Maranzano, James LaPore in Bronx, and a Philly mobster, Siragusa was killed two weeks after the Maranzano killing. I think there was a fifth too, but his name slips my mind right now.

Re: Rare photos - 11/11/12 06:57 PM

Charles Majuri. Underboss of the DeCavalcante family. Never moved out of his mother's house. He is close to 70 now.



Two made guys were sent to kill him at his mother's house. They stayed parked outside in a car for over two hours before deciding to fly back to Florida and tell their boss (Vincent Palermo I think) they couldn't do it. Palermo sent the two to kill Majuri after Palermo found out Majuri was planning to kill him and another member of DeCalvancante's administration. The family was in a delicate position and Vincent Palermo, Giralomo Palermo, (not related) and Charles Majuri created a panel of high profile mafiosi, including themselves, to run the Mafia family. Majuri heard both Palermos were planning to make a change that wouldn't benefit or defecit Majuri's position in the family or his pockets. For whatever reason this made Majuri rage and plan to have Vincent Palermo killed. After the two made men returned to Florida and give Vincent the "bad" news, Vincent decided to call off the hit entirely, because he knew Majuri's motivation was simply blind rage and that they'd be able to work it out down the road. Majuri was indicted that year.





And who is this guy?
Posted By: HairyKnuckles

Re: Rare photos - 11/11/12 07:16 PM

Charles Majuri´s father Frank, was also a high ranking member going back to when Nick Delmore headed what later became the DeCavalcante Family. Frank died in 1999.

Re: Rare photos - 11/21/12 10:27 PM

I think the picture was taken sometime around 1987. At that time, Andy Campos was just a teenager. That guy in the picture, does not look like a teenager. So it´s most likely not Andy Campos. The guy in suit (with his hands in the pockets) kinda reminds me of Eddie Lino. But I´m far from being sure. The picture is too blurry to know for sure.

- Located at 63-62 75th Street in Middle Village, this is the longtime Queens home of Fritzy Giovanelli and his family. The house's phone was bugged by the FBI in the course of a federal racketeering investigation.
- This ramshackle Queens storefront, known as the Bushwick Democratic Club, had been used as a headquarters by Fritzy Giovanelli and his associates
-Detective Anthony Venditti was shot to death in front of this Ridgewood, Queens restaurant, the Castillo Diner. Fritzy Giovanelli was arrested running from the scene of the shooting, but he was eventually acquitted of murder charges.
- In a Greenwich Village neighborhood now dotted with chic boutiques and fashionable restaurants, the Triangle Social Club is a dingy reminder that the Genovese crime family remains entrenched in the area.
- Since access to the Triangle Social Club is limited to, um, members, here's an FBI floorplan of the club (interior details were provided by a bureau snitch who'd spent time within the Triangle's hallowed walls).
-This is the Manhattan building in which Frank Condo lived.

My grandfather lived right up the street from where Frankie Yale lived on 14th ave and 67th street in Brooklyn. My grandfather knew him well in the 1920's and in later years his widow used to sit outside of their home in the 1960's and I would see her as an older heavy woman.

He wasn't necessarily a dead-line "rat". He still worked in crime and fed authorites information to get by his criminal life. I didn't know that he was child molester and pedophile, is that a complete FACT though?. Some guy, All I knew about him was that he was a hardcore criminal.

You don't understand what I'm saying. Put it this way. Is Whitey Bulger a bigger rat than Sammy Gravano, Anthony Casso or even Big Pussy from The Sopranos. Bulger wasn't a complete rat. He gave information so they allowed him protection so then nobody could touch him making him the biggest in Boston. He was still involved in that old Boston gang which he was in and didn't completely sell out everyone. Though now I know he is a child molester, I don't like him.

They both did! They probably Diddled each other. The reason I'm so confident in my answer is the Priest who ran the school cleaned up Mt Carmel in Harlem and he explained why he was so serious about it. It was because he saw the treachery of Whitey! The Boston Globe wrote an article which several of the victims gave thier accounts of what happened

Re: Rare photos - 12/22/12 04:39 PM

Really? Okay, Since Whitey Bulger is a complete rat (in your eyes) then I guess Sammy Gravano isn't a complete rat or even a RAT. You could indeed tell me thing's which I wouldn't find in book's but so could I. I could tell you that Carlo Gambino was my uncle. Whitey Bulger isn't a complete, Do you know why? He didn't hide from The Mob and instead ran his own army while giving information. He gave information so he could carry on his business and without going to prison. He didn't (back then) enter the witness protection program but still had good protection from authorites. Sammy Gravano is a COMPLETE rat. He didn't carry on doing crime while giving information what Bulger did. Do you understand what I'm saying now?.. Also maybe you have reading problems, If you didn't notice I said I hated him. I changed my mind about him when you told me that he was a pedophile. Also, Why swear when you won't say it face-to-face. Plus, How on earth could I get my facts straight when I knew nothing about Bulger. All I knew was that he was a hardcore criminal. I'm not very much interested in Whitey so I wouldn't of known that he was a pedophile.

My boy? My boy? Really? Is that really so. You know, I knew nothing about Whitey. All I atleast cared about was that he was a Boston criminal.

To be honest Harlem, You don't really know him either. You have these books and people like Jerry Capeci then you'll believe them people in a click. I did like Bulger as I saw The Departed which was based on him. I never knew much about him and I'm still not going to really look him up. You cant really bust my balls about this and plus I don't read much books. Some but not alot and of-course not about Boston figures.

Reiter was convicted of a murder i believe and stood his ground,much respected by OC guys from his era.

I'm sure Pistone is preserving/rationing a photos information and whatever else he can make a buck off of..I wouldn't be surprised if he reached as far as making a movie about going after Nickey Barnes or Frank Lucas...didn't Pistone sue the film company and producers of American Gangster because they said the cops stole money and they claimed they didn't ...

I'm referring to the movie American Gangster not the Tv Series just wanted to clarify that

Agreed. I´m sure there are FBI files available on him and requestable through FOIA, but other than Pistone´s info on him, there is not much out there that´s accessible.
I know his real name was Angelo J. Greca and that he was born in 1927. He did a stint in jail in the early 1970s after been arrested in Switzerland (!) on charges of conspiracy to transport and sell a $100,000 U.S. Treasury note stolen from a New York brokerage firm.

Agreed. I´m sure there are FBI files available on him and requestable through FOIA, but other than Pistone´s info on him, there is not much out there that´s accessible.
I know his real name was Angelo J. Greca and that he was born in 1927. He did a stint in jail in the early 1970s after been arrested in Switzerland (!) on charges of conspiracy to transport and sell a $100,000 U.S. Treasury note stolen from a New York brokerage firm.


Ah interesting stuff. Bit random he was in Switzerland!

I'm sure I recall that in Joe Pistone's book it mentions that Jilly was whacked in 1980 whilst sat in his car at a traffic light. So that concludes that he was whacked because the Bonnano's thought he might flip, rather than having anything to do with the Bonnano's getting rid of anyone who let Pistone into the family - which of course was 1981 onwards.

Camera shy is putting it lightly! There aren't even any family photos of George,
aka George Agento. Philie Katz also in this photo along with Frank the bug, and Joe Gallo, talk about rare photo! I have seen where some people mistakenly refer to Georgie as "Flip"
That is not accurate, Two different guys. Flip was low level not a made guy.
George was called "Georgie Agento" because of the area of Sicilly he was from, although he was born here and then spent quite a bit of time there as a young man before returning to the U.S.

Here's some I found about a Russian mob boss in Latvia. Ivan Kharitonov. In the 90's he was nicknamed as the 'king of extortion' by the media. He controlled almost whole Riga with his group. I've seen this guy in real life myself, and he gave a damn scary look at me and my friend when we passed. Saw him with a really fancy Lexus back then this summer.

Kharitonov(right) and his Brigade in the 90's,

Here's he's a bit older.

And these are him attending New Wave each year in Jurmala.

First photo taken of Joe Queli (on right) before turning himself into prison for his loansharking convictions in the Newark waterfront arrest about 2 years ago. Photo taken at the same HS reunion as Licata. (Thanks to rocco and soliai for the photo.)

Second photo is Joe Queli is sitting to the left and Mike Coppola is (short guy) standing with the beard to the right. Photo was taken at a HS reunion sometimes in the 1970's. (Thanks to rocco and soliai for the photo.)

Hughie Mulligan (died 1973) was a New York mobster and bookmaker who headed criminal activities of the "Irish Mob" in Hell's Kitchen during the 1950s. His protégés included Jimmy Burke, an associate of the Lucchese crime family, and his eventual successor Mickey Spillane.

Nice to see some colour snaps of Demeo.
These would be from the 1979 hunting trip mentioned in Al Demeo's book.

As to the question of who nailed Richie Dinome.........my money would be on the Gemini twins.
Richie would know things about Roys crew that could incriminate the twins, they certainly had a motive to whack him.

Nothing really new in them but here's a couple articles on when the 3 of them were murdered. The one article said the other 2 guys were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Here's a fairly recent photo of Barney Bellomo. Thanks to Barbarian for posting this on the RD. Charlie Luciano said it was taken shortly after Barney was released from prison four years ago, at the celebration of his daughter Sabrina's first child.

No, I'm not saying that. All that was originally posted was that little part showing Barney's face. My point is, I could see the griping if his entire family was shown. But it's not so it's really no big deal.

There have been a ton of personal photos of numerous gangsters posted on this forum and the others. I haven't seen you say anything about it until now. Sorry, EHI, you're not going to get any brownie points with Barney for defending his "privacy" on this board. He is a public figure. And he's a gangster. Maybe he should have become an insurance salesman instead. Not my problem. And there's nothing wrong with posting that photo. Now quit bitching.

First, who's acting tough? Second, who said I was a cop? I'm a juvenile probation officer. Third, recent photos of Bellomo are hard to come by. I take the time to post one, after it's posted over on the RD, and you guys act like I've broken some code. Like it's your duty to defend Barney's privacy and honor or something. All the while, not saying word one about all the other personal photos of mobsters that have been posted here. Why is that? You guys have something special for Bellomo? Seriously, this is a forum where information, photos, etc. is posted. If you don't like it, go over to Barney's house and ask him if you can shovel his walk for him or something. Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and he'll let you guys wipe his ass. whistle

i'm far from some big fan of the police, so if that is what you are driving at, sorry. are you going to honestly pretend that the guy in question is nothing more than a glamorized low-life criminal? is he an interesting guy, yeah sure. do i think the world would be much better off without leaches like him? without a doubt! some of you guys here treat these men like royalty, and if you are involved in that life, ok. if you are not, don't try to claim some weird street cred about not exposing these guys, because if you really were involved in that life, then just being on this site makes you a hypocrite.

If you really thought it was disgusting, you would have said the same thing about the other personal photos of mobsters that have been posted here in the past. But you haven't. All this is about is you trying to play Mr. Street Guy and acting like you're defending some code of the street or something. It's pathetic and makes you come across as a major fan boy. You'd probably shit your pants if somebody posted a personal photo of Fat Tony. whistle

That's the background the original poster of the photo gave over on the RD. That Barney has a daughter named Sabrina, who's an attorney, isn't exactly news to some here.

Sabrina represented her father back in 2007 and was integral in getting him a great plea deal on a mail fraud charge. So it's true that her identity is a matter of public record. But it's also true that to raise a daughter that intelligent and refined, that there is some good in the man. So it cuts both ways, and we should at least ecognize that wink.

The man raised a great family. Those of you that know me here know I wouldn't make that claim to kiss ass or live some kind of vicarious fantasy. It's from personal knowledge of the situation. But I'm done in this thread. I won't make another post. I'll just add that this silly infighting HAS TO FUCKING STOP!!!!

Rediculous, the whole idea of the Post is "Rare Photos". A poster would want to post a photo someone maybe has that no one has ever seen before and a viewer who is facinated with the share of it can revel in the discovery.

Your comments could deter a welcome fresh view of something rare, rather than the same old images refiltered over and over. And for it to have unsubs in it, being friends or family, happens all the time and a trip of the trade.

Fifty years ago today, March 5, 1963:

Thousands overflow a South Brooklyn street for a glimpse of the Anthony Anastasio funeral procession as it moves slowly from the church. The union boss of the Brooklyn waterfront died March 1, age 57, of a heart condition. In addition to 15 flower cars, the funeral procession included about 50 limousines.

Anastasio was Albert Anastasia's brother.

Nice find, SC. Since you're out of Brooklyn...

That photograph is looking east from Summit Street between Hicks and Henry, where it turns into to 1st Place.

The property of the church where Tony had his funeral, St Stephen, goes east from between Carroll and Summit.

Joey was in the can then, of course, but I wonder if the other Gallo brothers or anyone else from the crew was there since, besides paying 'respects,' they were like a two minute walk away.

Anastasio was Albert Anastasia's brother.

Lighten up, it's Saturday.

SC was obviously posting that pic because it was taken 50 years ago TODAY. I've never seen it, so it's rare to me. Post a rare instead of complaining.

Thanks for the pic, SC. Never seen it.

Not sure if these have been posted before, but after hearing about Jimmy Nap on some mob documentary's I did a little digging and found these on Tony Nap's (Jimmy's son) website.

Genovese Caporegime and the New York Mafia's 'super banker' James "Jimmy Nap" Napoli, during the 1970's he controlled the largest illegal gambling operation in the United States which allegedly employed two thousand people and grossed over $150 million a year.


Jimmy Nap (right) at a boxing match in the 70's, throughout his career Napoli was indicted for fixing several boxing bouts.


Napoli and associates doing time in Danbury Connecticut in the 80's.


A photograph of Jimmy outside one of his crews favourite hangouts, Crisci's Restaurant in Brooklyn.


Napoli enjoyed fine foods, good wine and a life of luxury, he was known as a "Gentleman's Gentleman".

The NY Post had a pic today of Sen. Al D'amato in a pic with two Gambino associates, today. Not sure if this can be linked, just thought I would mention, it was pretty cool. I saw it on the website NYPOST.COM, just a few hours ago and went back to link it and its gone now. I guess he made a few phone calls.

Oh well. I left the paper on my desk, its out there.

This is interesting, I made a thread on this about a year ago and a lot said they weren't. Is there proof? They were with the Gambino's in 83 and maybe 84 so it would be quick to get made into a new family in a year or two?


I have been looking but haven´t found any proof. Somewhere in the back of my mind I do remember reading that they were made. And mentioned in the same sentence was (if I remember correctly) their initiation was a "thank you" for a job well done. (The Roy DeMeo killing.)
I think both of them had a good relationship with the Luccheses. Especially Joey whose brother Patty was a Lucchese member.


I think we may finally come to a rest on this matter. According to the new D´Arco book (a pretty decent read btw) both Anthony Senter and Joey Testa were inducted into the Lucchese Family in 1988. They were put in D´Arco´s crew (the old Paul Vario crew).

Idk. Both are great but pacino is only defined by one role while de niro has had more defining roles. They both have had a lot of terrible roles. But I'd say if both of their careers ended after the 90s or even before the 90s started, De Niro would be seen as the better actor. De Niro I would put in the top 3 all time idk if I would put pacino up there. I think the main reason they're always compared so much is because they came up at around the same time and they're both Italian americans who have played mobsters.

I personally prefer Deniro too, but what one role are you talking about? If it's Michael Corleone i wouldn't even say that's his best performance, i'd say that's Dog Day Afternoon. As well as DDA and the three Godfathers, there's Scarface,Serpico,And Justice for all. I'd also say he's very underrated in Donnie Brasco too.

For Deniro i'd say, GF2,Taxi Driver,Raging Bull,Goodfellas,King of Comedy,Casino and Heat. Maybe Once Upon a Time In America too, but Deniro always annoyed me in that.

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 05:25 PM

Yes Pacino MADE Donnie Brasco along with Madsen. You'll find a copy of The Godfather (I and II) and Scarface in about every household these days. The same could probably be said for Goodfellas and maybe Casino. I say Pacino.

Justice for all is a good flick too. And I agree with Donnie Brasco; you listen to the tapes with Lefty talking to Pistone on the phone and then Pacinos performance in the movie and it's like listening to the two same people.
Posted By: Revis_Knicks

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 08:57 PM

I agree with that completely. Dog day afternoon is one of my favorite pacino performances if not my favorite. But people really only know him as Michael corleone rather than sonny wortzik it seems. I always thought de niro was great in midnight run, the fan, cape fear and deer hunter too. Pacino was also great in Carlito's way. I thought De Niro was great in his new movie silver linings playbook too. I think he won the oscar for it but I'm not sure. I know he was at least nominated. I felt he should've won. But De Niro was also extremely versatile as an actor. Some other actors I feel that are great are jack Nicholson, Denzel Washington, marlon Brando and so on. I think Jonny Depp is really something special. He can play pretty much any role at a high level.
Posted By: Camarel

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 08:59 PM

His performance in, ...And Justice For All is ridiculously underrated. I get that people wouldn't want to watch a random 70's courtroom drama, but it's one of his best imo. The same for Deniro in King of Comedy, i barely know anyone who's seen that movie but imo it's Deniro's best performance.
Posted By: Revis_Knicks

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 09:06 PM

I agree. Justice for all was great. I think he might've over-acted a little bit in that but still a stellar performance and I think one of his best. I don't think I've seen king of comedy. Would love to see it though. My favorite performance by De Niro is either as him as Vito or jake Lamotta. Both flawless. Idk if I've ever seen a better performance than his as Vito corleone to be honest. When I saw it I really thought he wasn't an American. I didn't even know it was him. And I saw mean streets! I didn't know it was him until I saw his name in the credits.

What people, you? I think you're either underrating Pacino or overrating Deniro. I completely agree with you on Deniro i prefer him too , but can you point towards his versatility compared to Pacino?

In all honesty i wouldn't say either are incredibly versatile. Not many actors are. My favourite actor ever, Humphrey Bogart played more or less the same character in every movie.

One versatile actor that popped into my mind right away was Gary Oldman, Sid Vicious, Leon villain, Dracula, Beethoven, Commissioner Gordon,etc.

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 11:34 PM

That's my opinion. You ask people who they know al pacino as on the street and they'll say Michael corleone. People think of him as Michael corleone more so than any character he's played. He's had some great roles but honestly I've never been as impressed with him as others have been. That is after godfather trilogy and dog day afternoon of course. He seemed to over-act a lot by yelling. He also had a lot of sudden silences in pretty much everyone one of his movies. Not all of course, but a lot. I wouldn't really say that that in itself is great acting. And yelling and sudden silences seem to be his signature. In most credible top actor list you would see de niro ahead of pacino. And De Niro is much more versatile than pacino. Look at his roles compared to pacino's. Al's haven't been too much different from each other. De Niro's have been more various than Pacino's. And I feel like De Niro invests more into his movies. He basically acts as a co-director from what all of his documentaries have said. And he's been in 70 something movies compared to pacino who hasn't been in nearly as much. Most of their movies haven't been that good, but the ones that are, are legendary. Not every movie is gonna be great. But in the end, both are legends, both are in my top 10 but I definitely prefer De Niro over him.

Re: Rare photos - 11/01/13 11:36 PM

And yes Oldman is great and versatile. But he is not on the level of De Niro or Pacino. In order to be compared to them you have to be on their level. I would compared Denzel to them, Brando, Nicholson, mike Douglas, Harrison ford, robin Williams etc to them.

Nice pic of Al Lettieri. I'm a big fan of his, Al was a real badass. He was great as Rudy in The Getaway.
Al Lettieri and Steve McQueen...you don't get much cooler then those 2 guys.



In the Getaway he has Harold all tied up and he's banging Harold's girl played by Sally Struthers right in front of him...lol! What a shame Lettieri died so young, i think he was 47 or 48 when he died. He had a great career ahead of him IMO, a real loss.

I asked you to show Deniro's versatility compared to Al's, as i expected you didn't make a case for either rolleyes . Again you've attributed Pacino to The Godfaher, without watching or at least acknowledging his other roles. It doesn't matter what you decide is a defining role.

What does this mean anyway - Al's haven't been too much different from each other. De Niro's have been more various than Pacino's. And I feel like De Niro invests more into his movies.

Re: Rare photos - 11/02/13 01:52 AM

Cape fear, taxi driver, goodfellas, bloody mama, meet the parents, analyze this(both comedies), bang the drum slowly, raging bull, the fan, everybody's fine, silver linings playbook are all very different from each other. And I did acknowledge his other roles. Go back and read it. I said he was great in Godfather 1&2, dog day afternoon, Carlito's way, serpico, Donnie brasco and justice for all. Al Pacino's roles all haven't been too much different from each other. He plays best as a mobster or cop. He plays the same roles for the most part. Pacino is not good at comedy while De Niro has proved to be very good at comedy. I'm not saying in my opinion but based on his general reception when he was doing his comedy acts. De Niro has more range to go from character to character it seems. When I say he invests more, I mean look at what he did for raging bull, he gained like 60 pounds to portray the older jake Lamotta. He didn't eat for days to play his dug addicted character in bloody mama, he was a taxi driver in manhattan so he could get his role down for taxi driver, he even went to Sicily and lived there in order to get the language down for the Godfather 2. He always wanted to get his character down to the tee. For instance, when he played jimmy Conway he wanted to know the big things and little things about him, such as how he held a cigarette and so on. Based on the documentaries I've seen of him, he is basically the unofficial co-director because he always has input on his movies. Not all of them I'm sure, but many of them. Such as Scorsese's movies. Scorsese has said that De Niro helps a lot in the directing process and always has ideas on how to make the movie better.

Re: Rare photos - 11/02/13 01:54 AM

And don't forget, just because a movie isn't that good doesn't mean that there aren't great performances in them. Pacino and De Niro have produced some bad movies where they have had very good to even great performances in my opinion.

Yes, it is or was Pasquale Eboli.

Heres the original Vanity Fair article with the picture that talks about the day that Al Lettieri brought Pacino over to his relative Eboli's house. I think he also brought Brando there too, either the same day or another day. I forget which.

Al Pacino's roles all haven't been too much different from each other. He plays best as a mobster or cop. He plays the same roles for the most part. Pacino is not good at comedy while De Niro has proved to be very good at comedy. I'm not saying in my opinion but based on his general reception when he was doing his comedy acts. De Niro has more range to go from character to character it seems. When I say he invests more, I mean look at what he did for raging bull, he gained like 60 pounds to portray the older jake Lamotta. He didn't eat for days to play his dug addicted character in bloody mama, he was a taxi driver in manhattan so he could get his role down for taxi driver, he even went to Sicily and lived there in order to get the language down for the Godfather 2. He always wanted to get his character down to the tee. For instance, when he played jimmy Conway he wanted to know the big things and little things about him, such as how he held a cigarette and so on. Based on the documentaries I've seen of him, he is basically the unofficial co-director because he always has input on his movies. Not all of them I'm sure, but many of them. Such as Scorsese's movies. Scorsese has said that De Niro helps a lot in the directing process and always has ideas on how to make the movie better.


I have the feeling you've recently watched DeNiro's biography on the Bio Channel like myself lol

Also I read another member saying that Mazzones wife (Danielle) left him a while back.. So if that's not her in the picture then that is either his new wife or his girlfriend I suppose.

This guy must feel like shit waking up everyday with everything that went on ever since the day he got busted and him and his dads life turned into a nightmare.. I mean not only did there business get shut down, but his dad went against everything he believed in and stood for just to save his son and in the end his dad couldnt take it and ended up killing himself. I couldnt even begin to imagine how I would feel if my father and I were ever in that situation. But thats the path they choose right...

That is just the end-date of his original RICO conviction of 45 years. Once that ends, on the off-chance that he lives that long, he would then begin the life sentence he received for first-degree murder.

Luciano was arrested down in Miami, Florida around the time of when that picture of Masseria and wife was taken. It looks like they were both (Luciano and Masseria) down there to relax and to...gamble. During a raid on a suite in a Miami Beach hotel, 19 gamblers were rounded up. Luciano was arrested on operating the gambling game, carrying a concealed weapon (he had a revolver on him) and vagrancy charges. One of the gamblers arrested, had 60 thousand dollars on him! But another, hapless soul had only 12 cents... lol

your pic above says ralph staino was a soldier in the 70s 80s. But I am a little confused. And the book "blood and honor" is a source of a little of that confusion

Nicky Crow says that Staino was part of one of the street tax collection crews in the very early 80s. But then he says, at the time of Staino stealing P2P from one of their protected guys, 1986, he wasn't a made guy.

When the hell was this guy made? Or was he never made and always an associate? And if he's Ant Staino's uncle, since they have the same the same last name, does that mean Ant's dad is Ralphs brother? Is he legit?

Ralph Staino was one of the last people Scarfo made it was right before they got indicted, it is mentioned in Blood and Honor it was after the p2p thing

I know Ralph is DEF Anthonys uncle. But I am not 100% positive how theyre exactly connected. Probably Ralphs brother is Anthonys father, and I have never heard anything about him. Anthony was a union guy in the 90's probably as a favor to his uncle by scarfo. He probably met Ligambi around the same time and they must of been on the same page with how to make money. Thats probably how they became so close.

And Ralph was Def made by Scarfo. though not very active when he got out of prison. He was ill and later passed away.

What do you base that on, his being a mafia member? I will take Cuban Girls word for him being as she said. All the reading I have done on Crea, he has always seemed more into money side of things, and never have I seen him portrayed as a thug. It does not make him an innocent, but what are you going by?

No need for your sarcasm. If you take the time to read the indictment of him, there in no violence in the charges. The extortion charge is due to money being skimmed, and pay offs. This is extortion under RICO law.

probably Atlanta, it's where he'd been for the majority of his bid. Right now hes @ Butner according to the BOP site.

Whoever took it was more than likely another inmate whose job is to take inmate photos in the visiting room that'd be my guess

Didn't the Snake and Bernie have some kinda beef there and apparently the Snake had some big dude go and beat up Bernie? I also feel like Bernie took off his glasses and threw down with Carmine's henchman who was some big dude that was a karate, for lack of a better word, expert. Bernie got sent to the infirmary for wounds but I think he kept his mouth shut and didn't say anything when questioned.

Vitovito, who is that in picture with Dellacroce, and do you have any background on the year and the arrest? That's a great photo. It is obviously a line up shot, I wonder who the others in photo are. There is a person on far right who's arm is visible.

Looks like Abe Reles, a hitman for Murder, Inc. IF it is him then this photo was from the late '30s.

It does look like him a little, but I don't think it is. In 1930's Dellacroce would have still been in his 20's, he seems older in this photo. If it is Reles, that is one amazing picture.

You're right.... the large version of the photo shows it is dated 1958. Reles' canary wings were long clipped by then. The photo was taken six months after Gambino took over the Family.

In 1958, Dellacroce was arrested for vagrancy. I would think that the other guys were also arrested for tha same thing and were not necessarily connected with eachother. Gosh, Dellacroce looks to be 7 feet tall, standing next to that small guy!

Speaking of this, maybe I don't understand the concept of "vagrancy" very well, but if I do, and it really does mean "being a homeless person, a bum", then how on earth can a mafia member be EVER in such a situation, unless he wanted to tease the cops on purpose? It doesn't make sense even for the lowest associates, unless it's some drug addict used for just one time to deliver a package.

I know that back in the day small midwestern and southern towns would charge bums, drunks and transients with that charge to either put them in the county lock-up or make them move along to the next town. It was one of those losely defined nuisence charges that cops could use.

Neil was known as "the Tall Guy" He does looke very menacing especially when he was younger. Its a stark contrast to the photos in 1984 when thr cancer had taken effect

Was 'Thief' worth checking out? No, I didn't think it was. I wouldn't recommend it. In my opinion Caan is a weak actor all across the board, especially in tough guy roles. His attempt at a Chicago accent was pathetic & came off as a Bridgeport guy with a Jersey accent which is obviously laughable & awkward.

The coolest/most authentic thing Mann ever did regarding Chicago was the television series 'Crime Story' starring Dennis Farina.

Wow - what an awesome thread....I love these new generation pics and I collect vintage LCN photos (b&w physical copies). Is there any way to see the pics on the first few pages of this thread? I would love to see if they are some I have missed in my many hours of searching online. I found this one today and forgive me if it's been posted before but I have never seen it. I love 'line-up' pics and Luciano pictures in general so for me it was a great find -

He died of cancer in 2000.



In 1909, Giuseppe Calicchio, an immigrant from Naples, began work for the Morello gang in Highland, New York as a printer and engraver of counterfeit Canadian and US currency. In 1910, the printing plant was raided and Calicchio along with his boss Giuseppe Morello and 12 other gang members were arrested. Calicchio received 17 years hard labor and a $600 fine, but was released in 1915.



In 1908, Antonio Cecala was a counterfeiter working for Giuseppe Morello. His career was short lived after he was convicted in 1909 of conterfeiting and sentenced to 15 years and a $1,000 fine.



Phillip Leonetti (b. March 27, 1953) seemed to pattern his life after his uncle, Philadelphia crime family boss Nicodemo Scarfo. In the 1980s, Leonetti was moving through the family crime ranks as a mob hitman, capo and then underboss to Scarfo.
After receiving a 55-year prison sentence in 1988 on murder and racketeering charges, Leonetti decided to work with the federal government as an informant. His testimony resulted in the convictions of high-ranking mobsters including John Gotti. In return for his cooperation he was released from prison after serving only five years.



Leonetti looks high or bored in the pic.

Agree- very nice find. As to who the others are, the one looks like Frankie Loc but as to the other being John Carniglia, I thought Carniglia was incarcerated in Alabama or Mississippi while Testa is t North Carolina at Butner. maybe someone will know for certain

Good work Rille & Moe . It is still hard for me to believe that they would put someone like Testa in a vacation resort like this.
