Philly DiCiccio

Philly DiCiccio hung with Sinatra's crew in the 60s, ran illegal errands for old Joe Kennedy in the 30s, his butcher shop was a Village staple for 40 years, and he's still kicking it. A proud old school man, Philly sometimes kept company with the mad mobsters that used to populate what was in the 60s a much larger Little Italy, extending to Gotti's future home on Delancey up to Vinnie the Chin Gigante's social club on Sullivan. Philly knew them all, sold them plenty of prime cuts. Philly's best friend was Sinatra's longtime body guard, Jilly Rizzo, who ran a club in midtown. When Philly was a kid, Joe Kennedy would round up he and the other juvies for the midnight liquor runs during prohibition. These days, Philly takes it easy. He deserves it.

I bet Mr.DiCiccio could write a very interesting book.

Fabulous post. I'm surprised he's so up front about it. I thought these mobster types liked to keep things discreet. You didn't see nothin, capiche? Having said that, there is a certain arrogance about the whole thing. Here I am, this is me - what are you gonna do about it? Er...absolutely nothing!
