Crazy Joe Gallo’s last moments in Little Italy

Crazy Joey Gallo was a gangster specializing in typical mafia activities such as extortion and racketeering. Flamboyant, charming, well-read, he became a kind of celebrity, hanging out with writers, actors, and other New York scenesters. On the night of his 43rd birthday, on April 7, 1972, he stopped into Umberto’s Clam House on Mulberry Street in Little Italy. Around 5 am gunmen entered the restaurant and start firing, hitting Gallo 5 times; he staggered out to the street, and died.
