I wish the mob was still active in roch. At lease it was safe to go downtown and there was a downtown. Now everything is so run down by the gangs you don't dare go anywhere near the city. Bring back the Itialian Mob and let them clean thnigs up.

Well I'm black and I can tell ya to please tell them to hurry. We need them ASAP. I'd be willing to be a snitch(free of charge). I'm sick and tired of these ruthless thugs ruining everything that us family people are trying to do. My wife and I purchased $50 tickets to a fashion show and the show only lasted 1/2 hour because the thugs started fighting. We want peace back in our major cities. Even at the cause of deaths for these thug degenrates. I'm in favor of the mobb.

Just please do not mistake me for one of them!

Does anyone remember going to Ben's Cafe around 1968-1970? I am looking for a few people who worked there. There was a group that played there too, if anyone knows their names and/or where they are now. They were a popular band during that time and through the 70's in Rochester.

Maggadino died in the mid-70's, where the hell have you been?

The Todaros run it at last check, if they haven't all retired or went into legit business. Go eat their pizza at La Nova Pizza & Wings downtown on W.Ferry, one of the top joints in the USA.
If they did, then the Falzones and Niccoletti's run Buffalo/Nia Falls now.

As far as Rochester, call the Amicos, Piccaretos, Chiricos, Valentis and Vaccaros, they might be able to answer.

The mafia is alive and well in Rochester, and while it is not visible, it still has a big influence over business in Western NY.

There are still payoffs, hits and intimidation going on, but much better protected that the free wheeling, flashy 1950s through late 70s. Everybody is smarter now, and the feds haven't had a good case in years. We all miss Sammy G, always good for a laugh it his expense. Then click, BOOM, no more Sammy G.

Didn't one of the Rochester mob guys date Tanya Tucker for a while?

The local young mob guys are punks, nothing like it used to be when respect was demanded and important. It will self destruct over the next few years.

The feds should worry about black, asian, russian and latino gangs that kill wholesale, and are importing a tremendous amount of drugs into the area. That should be their focus.
