New Jersey has been home to mob legends, both real and made up, from Tony Soprano as the born and bred Jersey street boss to Jimmy Hoffa who some people say is buried in cement at New York Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. In real life, one of the most notorious mobsters was Albert Anastasia Jr who terrorized rivals for over three decades. His elegant New Jersey mansion goes to auction on December 8th. Albert Anastasia (born Umberto Anastasio, September 26, 1902 – October 25, 1957) was one of the most ruthless and feared Cosa Nostra mobsters in United States history. A founder of the American Mafia, Anastasia ran Murder, Inc. during the prewar era and during most of the 1950s was boss of what would become the modern Gambino crime family. He is perhaps the most feared hit-man of the American Mafia's golden era, earning the infamous nicknames "the Mad Hatter" and "Lord High Executioner."
