Genaro did not own Trinkaus Manor/ Portofino. Sid Genis bought the property from the bank, who forced the Trinkaus's to sell. They had run the buisness into the ground and were DEEP in debt. Sid Genis leased the restaurant to the owners of Casa Imports. The Cosimento's and John Fornino.
NO bank forced the Trinkaus family to sell. We were offered a good deal,from Sid genius gennaro cosamento's for the property. All 4 brothers had worked it for 47 years I think it was time to retire!
Sorry for your loss

You are obviously grasping at straws. Genarro was NOT one of the Cosimento's he was One of the Restaurant Managers, he had NO Financial interest in the business.
Everyone knows the truth, the Bank owned the Manor. The last attempt to save it was the sale of the Camp on 4th lake. The Trinkaus' had no more bargaining chips, period..... The only hope was to find a buyer to get the Bank off their backs, Stop's been over for 25 fu**ing years.
If Frank Trinkaus hadn't bought that House and got his sons started in the Business, none of them would have been anything more than Farmers or Ditch diggers.

Why haven't heads rolled for the injustice done to Steven Barns? Why have killers not been caught in well known crimes committed locally? Why does Sheriff Maciol get away with hiding a report and a cover up in the Wyman case? Why is the cover up in the Longo case allowed to continue? Why was the fiasco with Police Chief LaBella allowed to occur? Why is County Executive Anthony Picente trying to pick all of our pockets when NY State owes Oneida County money? Why does District Attorney Scott McNamara continue to prosecute citizens he knows are innocent by using flawed technology and keeping evidence from the defense?

The answer to all the above is because not enough people care.

Trinkaus Manor on fire
too bad you joined the many hateful racists , pro or con to the subject , who have written a comment .

when I and my cousins were told by our parents who they were thinking of selling the Manor to we begged them not to do it . I vividly remember telling my Dad that there would be nothing left, not even a building standing in a few years, if they sold it to whom they were about to. it was well known "they" had a reputation for torching . on the day the papers were signed the 'new' owners were in the bar's sweetheart lounge celebrating . they had no idea who I was as I was at the bar with some friends enjoying ourselves until I witnessed them all standing up, raising their glasses and proposing a toast to " the Trinkaus Brothers--those dumb son-of-a-bitches." I was livid and will never, ever forget that . Do I hate the wonderful people of east Utica for this? absolutely not . I do hate the "mob" aspect that is in every community, anywhere USA, that definitely did this and got away with it for sure .

As for the "money"- it was several years before my parents and aunts and uncles saw any of it--well-deserved--and believe me , it wasn't much to live on--why do you think Andy is still working at the age of 90 ?!!! It's certainly not because he WANTS to . Saddest of all is my uncle Bill passed before any monies were awarded .

as to many of the comments re: the Manor I think some are absolutely hilarious but then again I consider the sources . Funny tho that the only ones willing to put their true names out there are the Trinkauses . I do want to thank those of you who have fond memories and shared them --you'll never know how much that means to each and every one of us --especially my parents . oh yeah, by-the-way, to the one who wrote if my Grandparents didn't but the old Waterbury Estate the Boys would only have been ditchdiggers etc. number one :these are noble jobs with hard workers and two: two of my uncles who didn't join the restaurant business were very successful in the trucking business thank-you-very-much
