7. Triangle Social Club

The former location of the 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.
