Most aficionados of the American underworld are at least somewhat familiar with iconic Mafia leaders like Stefano Magaddino, head of the notorious Buffalo-Niagara Falls Family.
They were a relatively large borgata who had far-flung interests in several major cities and many smaller towns across the sprawling middle and northwestern sections of New York State and beyond.
But this article that I write today is not about the top leaders per se. This expose is about a largely hidden subject that has never before been written about. This expose concentrates on the literally hundreds, if not thousands of their supporting cast.
