7. Triangle Social Club
Considered by many as New York’s last great mafia social club, the Triangle officially closed its Greenwich Village doors in 2011. But it certainly left behind a legacy. Geneovese crime family boss Vincent ‘The Chin’ Gigante reportedly owned it, according to The New York Post.
In his later years, Gigante was known for walking around the neighborhood in a bathrobe and slippers. The authorities believed this was an ‘act:’ a way to play innocent of his crimes. Sullivan Street Tea & Spice Company now occupies the infamous space.
