Well, you know I don't have a dog in this fight, Mikey. But I'm intimately familiar with that area because I've been vacationing in Florida for most of my life, and I've owned a condo in nearby Delray Beach since '97.

So I'll just say this much: There are a LOT of people down there enamored with that lifestyle---and I'm talking about square professionals, like retired doctors and lawyers---who Joey could sponge off of if that was his style (and I have no idea if it is).

So I'm not saying that's the case. But a $400,000 condo or townhouse in Boca isn't really anything special, especially where he's living. Someone told me he lives over by Broken Sound near Spanish River. That's not exactly Ocean Boulevard. So it's not like he's Al Capone living on Palm Island.

But again, Philly isn't my area of expertise, and I'm always quick to point that out. But I am familiar with Palm Beach County real estate, so I thought I'd post smile.

My guess, and its just a guess, is that Merlino will end up in prison anyway for all of the dirt he has done in the past.

The guy was in a mob war in the mid 90s and only served ten years or whatever, that's pretty damn fortunate

ne philly
Dude has a job down there and maybe owns the business which is in flooring not sure on the type or level of flooring he has but real estate and building is on the rebound in florida so it could be a cash cow business he has... and he probably sold his house in s philly for a few $$ plus some mason jars buried here and there... maybe he took betting advice from floyd mayweather last year and won a few ducats that way too

See Mikey, thing is, EVERYTHING in this thread about joey, Borgesi and "Tony Philly cheesesteak" are assumptions pal.

You have as much idea if Joeys the current boss as I do or ANYBODY does. And unless you're a made guy in Philly, and amazingly not in the can, it's ALL SPECULATION.

I just use Logic when I do my speculating.
That's the diff.

And AS I SAID, one off the cuff remark at a dinner table 5 years ago isn't exactly overwhelming evidence.

But I've said my piece. Time will tell.


MORGAN: Why didn't you fight him at the park if you wanted to? I'm not goin' now, I'm eatin' my snack.
CHUCKIE: Morgan, Let's go.
MORGAN: I'm serious Chuckie, I ain't goin'.
WILL: So don't go.

Unless you considering having a job sitting on a nice boat drinking beers with your friends and family, he aint working.. Cause that's all I've seen, and I've seen enough.

Nah bro!

His mob retirement fund was full so he was allowed to retire!

That is how he has money for fancy cars, boats, houses, and expensive restaurants every night all while not having a job.

He fought those internal wars, and did all that time for nothing!

<end sarcasm>

And that COULD be the case.

But the last piece of evidence we have via the feds/wiretap, stated that Joey was the boss. And it makes no LOGICAL sense that he would have given up the crown.

And it is absolutely no coincidence that it is Merlinos right hand man acting on the street right now.

Not only that, people in Philly with people that know some of the players on the RD have echo'd the same sentiments.

Some schmuck off the streets would not likely be able to get these guys out of their mouse holes for that type of meeting. Not in this day and age.

To be honest I wouldn't even begin to speculate whether he is still involved,one thing for sure about Joey is that he is a survivor.A lot of times he just comes out smelling like a rose.He's been shot at,done time,beat some pretty heavy charges,tried to be set-up,survived the wars back in the 90's, and he looks like he hasn't missed a beat,no health issues,and he's his own man just does how he see's fit.all of those are facts.

Unless Nicodemo rolls and puts him inside for life whistle.

But seriously, I don't know much about him. But I tend to agree, 22. The guy IS a survivor smile .

Nobody's glorifying anything...I'm not trying to fight with You or Anybody on here, but this is a GANGSTER(Mafia)Forum and you talk about Mafia related topics. So that being said for a person like himself deserves to be acknowledged as a stand up guy and a survivor, for being in that life he chose ,that's all i'm saying....Weird Science ...Simple Math....Cincin

Bruno dead, Testa Dead, Scarfo life in prison, Stanfa life in prison, Joey living in florida tanning, and smoking cigars, he must be doing something right. where are all the people who crossed him?dead, in jail, or witness protection, those are facts period.

You seem like one of those guys from overseas...what country you from?

Either somewhere like France...

Or if you are from the states, Alabama?

How close am I?

You guys crack me up. You think it's a supernatural event to have street sources. A blog is by definition full of shit, you all think. I just want headlines. I've been a professional journalist for 25 years, covering the mob on my blog for four years. You honestly think I'd make stuff up? Sources, etc.? Every newspaper and blog uses anonymous sources. Capeci does. My sources obviously don't want to be named but that does not mean I don't know who they are; I do know and if I deem them creditable I use them otherwise I dont. Boy do I wish I could name them. People in all walks of life have an inherent desire to talk about their lives. With the mob, this is no exception -- who better to talk stuff over with? Just curious, where are you all from? I'm on Long Island.

I wonder that too. The Crown. A bunch of Brits think they can sit on their island and tell me in New York what's what. You guys are out of the loop. You read one book and you understand a guy like Paulie Gulino.

Capeci does. My sources obviously don't want to be named but that does not mean I don't know who they are; I do know and if I deem them creditable I use them otherwise I dont. Boy do I wish I could name them. People in all walks of life have an inherent desire to talk about their lives. With the mob, this is no exception -- who better to talk stuff over with? Just curious, where are you all from? I'm on Long Island.


Did you honestly just compare yourself to Capeci? haha

Thing is, Jerry's sources are usually on point. Otherwise he doesn't use them to make outlandish claims, and if he does(which is very rare), he is man enough to admit it.

Your sources were full of it on the Borgesi thing. Why can you not admit when you are wrong?

It's like when Pizzaboy called you out on Frankie Cali's age, and you refused to change it or admit wrong doing. I am glad Scott called you out in his latest write up. Someone needed to do it.

Borgesi scratching his head regarding boss report, Philly wiseguy trying not to make waves

Good ole’ Georgie Boy was just as shocked reading the news about himself, as most of those who were reading it about him were.

Last week, in a story on CoasNostraNews.com that has since been revised, George (Georgie Boy) Borgesi, the-recently released from prison 50-year old Philadelphia mafia stalwart was named the new boss of the Philly mob. Borgesi, the nephew of don Joseph (Uncle Joe) Ligambi, reached out to multiple people in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey media, expressing his dismay and confusion with the report that he deemed false, wondering where Coasnostranews' sources were getting their information.

Despite his pedigree and gangster past, the Philly mafia’s one-time consigliere is desperately trying to keep a low profile on the heels of his dozen-year plus trip to the can that came to an end a few months back.

The original printing of the story reported that Borgesi was using mob associates and brothers Mike and Stevie Salvo (roofers union) as his main proxies on the street, “grabbing everything back that was his before he went to jail” and taking over for the retiring Ligambi.

In January, Borgesi was sprung from federal prison after a 13-year stay on racketeering charges coupled with his beating further mafia-related charges alongside his uncle that came his way as he was about to be released from his 2000 conviction.

Ligambi and his nephew both beat the racketeering case twice at trial, most recently earlier this year, via hung-juries and acquittals.

Underworld sources in South Philly tell the Mob Insider that Ligambi is the syndicate’s current consigliere and Borgesi “might be able to get his stripes back as a capo or Ligambi’s replacement in his old post in the future, but for now, he’s merely a soldier.”

The sources peg Joseph (Skinny Joey) Merlino, convicted with Georgie Boy back in 2000, as boss of the crime family, ruling from afar in South Florida, relying on street boss Steven (Handsome Stevie) Mazzone and underboss John (Johnny Chang) Ciangalini to handle day-to-day affairs in Pennsylvania.

Borgesi is re-entering the Philadelphia mob at a delicate juncture right now, as multiple factions and eras jockey for position in a possible powder keg of a local gangland scene.

And I am not attacking you EVL. But when you are wrong, you are wrong.

As I have said before, I find your cosa nostra blog, to be one of my favorites to read. You just seem to be a little hard headed, thats all.

As an aside...Sonny Blackstein from across the pond...yet another reputable source with sources IN PHILLY, in regards to Joey's status...
