The crime-filled past of the tourist attraction is being told through the Mob Tour, a mafia-inspired look at the regions history.
Its not just tourists taking a whack at the tour.
Mike Rizzo, who runs the Mob Tour, says, We get some old mobsters that were involved in the mafia crime scene. I think theyre interested in what we do, the history, and they come to reminisce.
The 90-minute tour hits up places frequented by local mob kingpin Stefano Magaddino, who controlled a large part of the East Coast for 50 years.
Though Rizzo admits hes had his life threatened by an angry mobsters daughter, tour-goers shouldnt worry that theyll end up sleeping with the fishes.
Instead, he welcomes all to come out in their best mafia attire tomorrow (Jul. 19) for Dress Like A Mobster Day.
