Gambino Mob Boss Cali shot and killed on Staten Island - Update

Video reportedly shows a suspect’s truck deliberately hitting Cali's vehicle — perhaps to get Calì to come out of his home. The two shake hands, the license plate from the suspect's vehicle falls off, the suspect picks up the license, hands it to Cali, then pulls a gun and shoots as Cali puts the license in his own car. Cali, 53, was shot six times.
Francesco Cali, the boss of the Gambino crime family, was fatally shot outside his home on Staten Island. Police received a report about the shooting outside 25 Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m. There was a report of a blue pickup truck leaving the scene around the time of shooting. Cali was pronounced dead at Staten Island University Hospital.It has been decades since a Mafia boss was killed in New York.
The assassination of Cali came on the same day that Joseph Cammarano Jr., the reputed acting boss of the Bonanno crime family, was acquitted at trial.

Todt Hill is known for its Mafia history. Castellano, who was the last Gambino boss to be assassinated, owned a home on Benedict Road. A home on nearby Longfellow Road served as the filming location of the Corleone compound in “The Godfather.”
Big Paulie and his bodyguard are taken off the board in 1986 allowing John Gotti to become boss of the Gambino crime family.

Moving day for NY Hells Angels

The HA have been vacating their East Village clubhouse. The bikers are leaving behind a plaque commemorating “Big Vinnie” Girolamo, along with his motto, “When in doubt, knock ’em out.” The biker died in 1979 before he could stand trial for throwing Mary Ann Campbell off the roof of the clubhouse to her death. He believed she was an informant.
After 50 years at 77 E. Third St. where are they going? “We don’t know” said one. Criminal defense lawyer Ron Kuby has represented the club for years. He dismissed claims that the Hells Angels are into rackets and operate like organized crime. “Think of it as a church,” he said of the group. “Members of clergy who violate the law don’t make the church a criminal enterprise.”

The New York City Hells Angels are actually incorporated in New York State as the Church of the Angels, a nonprofit religious organization. That name was used when club members purchased the property in 1977, for a reported $1,900.

82 yo Gangster the last surviving link to mysterious $500M art heist

82-year-old Robert “The Cook” Gentile’s imminent release from prison is reigniting interest in the world’s biggest unsolved art heist. The $500m heist in 1990 was from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Gentile has been described as the last surviving person of interest in the case. None of the artworks has been recovered and the thieves are still at large.
Govaert Flinck’s Landscape with an Obelisk (1638).

'The Concert' one of 34 known works by Vermeer and the most valuable stolen painting at over $200m.
Some $500m worth of art, including Rembrandt’s 'Storm on the Sea of Galilee' was stolen from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in March 1990. The Gardner heist was carried out by two men dressed in police uniforms who apparently overpowered a night security guard who had buzzed them in. During a polygraph test, Hartford mobster Robert Gentile had an intense reaction when shown images of the missing paintings, while he remained calm when shown unrelated artwork. The museum initially offered a reward of $5m. In 2017 this was doubled to $10m with an expiration date set to the end of the year.

'A Lady and Gentleman in Black' by Rembrandt, painted in 1633.
Almost 30 years after the heist, the empty frames still hang in the Gardner Museum.

"No matter how nice the bikers appear to be, or how much they say they love your joint, stuff like what happened will happen," he said. "It will follow them every time. It's an iron law."
