A bar long gone, it became famous thanks to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. Jimmy ‘The Gent’ Burke, aka Robert De Niro’s role in the aforementioned film, owned the social club in Ozone Park until 1979. The place became particularly notorious, especially amongst the F.B.I., after Jimmy was named the main suspect in the Lufthansa heist.
The 1978 heist, which was covered in the movie, led to a huge body count, with bones even being dug up in the bar’s basement in 1980, according to United Press International.
