Tony Pro, Sally Bugs, Meyer Lansky, Crazy Joe . . . and of course, at center, the Teflon Don himself John Gotti . . . Little Italy has more than great canolis and ravioli. It’s got three generations of American Mafia, whose descendants often still run the restaurants. Come see Umberto’s Clam Bar where the Colombo Family finally caught up with Joey Gallo in a spectacular hit that Bob Dylan sang about; see where Sally Bugs met his demise after copping a deal with the feds to come clean about Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance; visit the old NYPD Headquarters (now a condo full of supermodels) where they had built an underground tunnel connecting to a nearby speakeasy and bordello . . . the old Italian neighborhood has stories like Rome has pigeons.
