Home Where Mob Boss Lived, Died in Hit Nominated as Landmark

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PHILADELPHIA Feb 16, 2016, 11:29 AM ET

The home of a late Philadelphia mob boss has been nominated to become a city historical landmark, 35 years after he was shot to death in a car in front of it.

Angelo Bruno, who was known as the "Gentle Don" when he ran the city's Italian mob in the 1960s and 1970s, was gunned down outside the home in 1980.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/1PWTzsz ) that Bruno's biographer sent the city's Historical Commission a landmark nomination for the rowhome.

The writer, Celeste Morello, said she nominated the three-bedroom home due to its significance in law enforcement history, saying Bruno's criminal activity helped shape federal laws and strategies for fighting organized crime.
