6. Ravenite Social Club

The former site of Ravenite Social Club, one of Little Italy's famous mob hangouts

The Ravenite Social Club at 247 Mulberry Street in Little Italy was one of Manhattan’s known mob hangouts thanks to ‘the Dapper Don,’ John Gotti. The place became a literal mob scene the day after Paul Castellano’s death, as associates and members of the Gambino crime family came to pay homage to the new leader. Perhaps it is even more famous for being a part of Gotti’s downfall, as the F.B.I. would go on to wire the club and the upstairs apartment.
