Gangland Wars

Stories about gangland struggles for power, including the Colombo Family Wars, the Bonanno Family War, Youngstown Bombing Wars, and more.

The Colombo Family Wars

What is known today as the Colombo Family originally started as the Profaci Family of South Brooklyn. It was headed by a wily veteran Sicilian mafioso named Giuseppe (Joe) Profaci. The second smallest borgata of New York’s infamous Five Families, with a formal membership of 150 soldiers and an estimated 750 associates, they were nonetheless a notorious bunch active in all underworld rackets and arguably the most violent Cosa Nostra Family to ever operate in the United States.

From approximately 1960 forward, they littered the streets of New York City with dozens and dozens of bodies while waging three successive internal gangland wars for power over the next forty years.

These are the stories of those bloody conflicts.
