While researhing the tunnnels I came upon some information about the ties to the mafia.

Does anyone have any information on this subject, specifically a guy named Bill Schwartz or William Schwartz? This guy was the owner of the athletic club on 9th street from 1947 to sometime in the 1970s.

I am not interested in criminal activity, I am researching information about a building that was once owned by Bill Schwartz.

Let me be very clear about this Joey:

There is currently NO mafia made or connected people in Huntington.

No matter what people want to "think", the only mafia-connected remain the Caruncchia (sp?) family and they are old and have since moved out of state to the west coast.

Anyone who says different regarding Huntington or elsewhere in the vicinity is an absolute liar, or are lying trying to impress or intimidate others.

Anthony Cafaro Sr., the former president of the Cafaro Co. and its two subsidiaries, the Ohio Valley Mall Co. and the Marion Plaza Inc., along with his sister, Flora Cafaro, were part of a 73-count indictment filed July 28.

The charges claim that they conspired to stop Mahoning County from purchasing Oak Hill Renaissance Place to house county agencies instead of continuing to pay rent at the Cafaro-owned property.

Also indicted were Mahoning County Commissioner John McNally IV, county Auditor Michael V. Sciortino, former treasurer John Reardon, former director of the Jobs and Family Services John Zachariah, and Cafaro attorney Martin Yavorcik. All have pleaded innocent.

Charges range from corruption, bribery, conspiracy, perjury, money laundering, tampering with records, disclosure of confidential information and soliciting or accepting improper compensation....Nope no Mafia ties @ all...he is the owner of Huntington Mall.....shows what you know....absolute liars...lol!
Your ignorance amuzes me

I will say it again, there is no mafia in Huntington, period. Again, if someone tells you different they are trying to impress. I suppose next they will say they built the Htgn mall in the shape of a gun, lol, idiots.

If you have specific questions regarding Pittsburgh or Cleveland associates or activities, I may be able to help. There is no "family" per se in Cleveland anymore since the Cleveland Heights idictments back in '97-98. I'd have to say the strongest group up there is the Mason family which have strong political ties or the Kleem/Shaker lebanese family. Pittsburgh is a bit more centralized and organized with the aging Bobby Iannelli still at the helm.

Those list of charges were pretty, although no RICO charge. Show me some evidence of them being in a mafia here.

If you say because of their last name, I'll give you my barber and claim he is mafioso on 1st st and 4th ave.

Fake mafia.

#15 Dec 29, 2010
You're joking right? I don't know of many non mafia members who have all those charges at once. Like I said...quit covering up...nobody really cares anyway...it's not a big deal...lol! I love Italians lol! Fist Pump!!

Vincent "Fish" Cafaro (born August 27, 1933) was a mobster and protegee of Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno, a top lieutenant in the Genovese crime family until becoming a government informant and witness.

Relatives...

and for it to be a RICO act you have to be charged with 2 of 35 charges within 10 years...

But the question remains is this: How is John J Cafaro related to Vincent Fish Cafaro? I cannot find this information online. I would assume he is his uncle or something along those lines.

I hear more about meth houses getting busted in putnam county than I do about drug dealers from detroit. Maybe you should move to a big city for awhile and tell me if you still think huntington is the wild west.
