The family originated in the early s under the leadership of Salvatore D’Aquila. They became one of New York’s “Five Families” and participated in “The Commission,” the governing board for organized crime families established by Charlie “Lucky” Luciano. Salvatore D’Aquila was murdered in and control of the Family went to Frank Scalise. Carlo Gambino the Don who the family is named after. The Gambino crime family is one of the Five Families that dominates organized crime in America, and rules the United States underworld with an iron fist, within the United States phenomenon known as the American Mafia (or La Cosa Nostra). The organization is named after Carlo Gambino, boss of the family at the time of the McClellan hearings in when the structure of organized crime first gained public attention. Gambino und Dellacroce bauten das Geschäft der Familie erheblich aus und konnten ihren Einfluss durch politisch geschickte Schachzüge schließlich auch auf zwei der anderen Mafia-Familien ausdehnen. Die Gambino-Familie, einstmals bekannt als Mangano-Familie, ist eine italo-amerikanische Mafiafamilie der amerikanischen Cosa Nostra und eine der sogenannten Fünf Familien von New York City, die dort die organisierte Kriminalität in weiten Teilen. Die Gambino-Familie (Gambino Crime Family), einstmals bekannt als Mangano-Familie, vermutlich von Mitgliedern von Profacis Gruppe ermordet und Gambino übernahm die Leitung der Familie, die heute nach ihm benannt ist. –, Carlo Gambino, Don Carlo, – Petey Boy, – heute, Bruder von John Gotti;.

Junior Gotti, Ex-Gambino Family boss, under investigation for association with the Latin Kings By DiMaiolo Santolo April 5, Son of the late and infamous Gambino family boss, John Angelo “Junior” Gotti once had to focus on his life. The Gambino crime family is the most publicized family of the American Mafia. It’s one of “Five Families” based out of New York that dominates organized crime in the United States. The Gambino family got its name from previous boss Carlo Gambino who controlled the family from until his death in October The [ ]. Retrieved March 5, Joe Masseria had a fight on his hands and his name was Salvatore Maranzano. He Backzucker Aniello Neil Dellacroce in as underboss. He did not consider approaching the Genovese family as Castellano had close ties with Genovese boss Vincent "Chin" Paysafekarten.
The failure of Joseph Bonanno , the head of the Bonanno crime family and Gambino's top rival, to kill off Gambino and the heads of other New York crime families in the aftermath of the Bonanno War, saw Carlo Gambino become the most powerful dictator of the Commission and Five Families.
Gambino allegedly stretched his immense power and reach as far as to organize the shooting of Joseph Colombo, boss of the Colombo crime family, on June 28, More likely, Colombo shooter Jerome Johnson was a lone nut attracted to Colombo for his Italian civil rights movement.
Or as Michael Franzese , a former captain in the Colombo Crime Family later said, it was set up by corrupt police officers in Gambino's pocket.
Colombo survived the shooting but remained in a coma until his death in He was buried next to Joe Gallo. Johnson was killed by Colombo's bodyguard.
In either case, Gambino's influence stretched into behind-the-scenes control of the Lucchese crime family, led by Carmine Tramunti.
On October 15, , Gambino died of a heart attack, and control of the family passed not to the obvious choice, Underboss Aniello Dellacroce , but to Paul Castellano , whose sister was married to Gambino.
Allies of Dellacroce were thoroughly unhappy about that move, but Dellacroce himself kept his men in line, and was kept on as Castellano's Underboss.
The Dellacroce faction remained displeased, believing that Castellano had inherited the role rather than earning it.
Castellano did retain a huge degree of muscle and a massive army of ruthless killers and professional assassins to keep Dellacroce's allies in check, including the Irish criminal gang The Westies , the Sicilian assassin organization known as the Cherry Hill Gambino's, and the notorious and much-feared hit squad run by Gambino family Captain Anthony Gaggi and Soldier Roy DeMeo , which was believed to have committed more than murders during Castellano's regime from the late s and mid s.
It was not a time for the family to be embroiled in inner turmoil and argument, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation had targeted the Gambino family as the easiest of the five families to infiltrate FBI tapes obtained from a bug planted in a lamp on Castellano's kitchen table caught him discussing illegal deals with his subordinates, and by the early s Castellano was up on a number of charges and faced with conviction.
He let it be known that he wanted Carlo Gambino 's son Thomas Gambino to take over the family should he be sent to jail, with Thomas Bilotti Castellano's chauffeur and bodyguard as his Underboss, which further enraged the Dellacroce faction, particularly John Gotti.
In , a federal indictment charged 13 members of the Gambino family with drug trafficking. This group included John Gotti's brother, Gene Gotti , and his best friend, Angelo Ruggiero , who got his nickname Quack Quack for his non-stop talking.
The feds had in fact been listening in on his home phone conversations since they had Ruggiero on tape discussing family business, making drug deals, and expressing contempt for Castellano.
If Castellano knew they were dealing drugs, in violation of his no-drug policy, Ruggiero would have been killed.
By law, the accused were allowed transcripts of wiretap conversations to aid their defense, and Castellano demanded to be shown them, though Dellacroce did his best to put him off.
Aniello Dellacroce was by this time suffering from cancer, but with Ruggiero desperate for help, his friend John Gotti stood up for him.
All the same, Castellano maintained that he wanted the transcripts, or he would have Ruggiero and Gotti removed.
Gotti realized he had to act fast, and the death of his mentor Dellacroce on December 2, , paved the way for him to take out Castellano.
On December 16, , Bilotti and Castellano were heading for a meeting with capo Frank DeCicco at the Sparks Steak House on 46th Street, when they were gunned down by four Gotti Faction  members disguised as Communist Russians in the middle of rush hour.
The Gambino crime family was then taken over by John Gotti. Unlike most of his colleagues, he made almost no effort to hide that he was a mob boss.
At that time, Salvatore Gravano was allegedly elevated to Underboss. Gotti favored holding meetings while walking in public places so that surveillance equipment could pick up visual images, but not the matters being discussed.
His home in Howard Beach, Queens, was frequently seen on television. One of his neighbours during that time was John Favara, who disappeared after hitting Gotti's year-old son with a car while he was riding his bike, killing him instantly.
Another neighbor was Gotti's dear friend and associate, Joseph "Big Joe" Massino, who was during the late s recognized as the Underboss of the Bonanno crime family, and a strong candidate for leadership, for the imprisoned Boss Philip "Rusty" Rastelli.
Many mafia leaders across the nation disapproved of his high-profile style, particularly Genovese crime family boss Vincent Gigante , a former ally of Castellano.
Ironically, Gigante had been the triggerman in the last unsanctioned hit on a Mafia boss, when he nearly killed Frank Costello in Gigante allegedly conspired with Lucchese crime family leaders Vittorio Amuso and Anthony Casso , to put out a contract on Gotti's life.
On April 13, , a car bomb meant for Gotti instead killed DeCicco. Eventually, Gotti's overconfidence, brash demeanor and belief that he was untouchable he was acquitted on federal charges three times, earning the nickname the "Teflon Don" proved his undoing.
Gotti was heard planning criminal activities and complaining about his underlings. In particular, he complained about Gravano, portraying him as a "mad dog" killer.
Gravano responded by turning state's evidence and testifying against Gotti. On April 2, , largely on the strength of Salvatore Gravano 's testimony, John Gotti and acting Consigliere Frank Locascio were convicted and received a sentence of life without parole.
Gotti continued to rule the family from prison, while day-to-day operation of the family shifted to capos John D'Amico and Nicholas Corozzo.
The latter was due to take over as acting boss but was himself sentenced to eight years in prison on racketeering charges.
Gotti's son, John "Junior" Gotti, took over as head of the family, but in he too was convicted of racketeering and sentenced to 77 months in jail.
When John Gotti Sr died in prison in , his brother Peter Gotti took over as boss, allegedly alongside John D'Amico , but the family's vast and extraordinary fortunes have dwindled to a remarkable extent given their enormous power and international influence a few short decades ago, when they were the wealthiest and most powerful criminal organization on the planet.
Peter Gotti was imprisoned as well in , as the leadership allegedly went to the current administration members, Nicholas Corozzo , John D'Amico and Joseph Corozzo.
As former rivals of John Gotti took completely over the Gambino family, mostly because the rest of Gotti's loyalists were either dead, jailed or under indictments, and that John Gotti died in prison in , then-current head of white collar crimes and caporegime, Michael DiLeonardo turned state's evidence due to increased law enforcement and credible evidence toward his racketeering trial, and was forced to testify against mobsters from all of the Five Families.
At the same time, Salvatore Gravano , Gotti's former Underboss, had evaded the program in and was arrested and jailed for operating an Ecstasy-ring that stretched from Arizona to New York City in During that same year, he was sentenced to 19 years in prison, ironically due to informants amongst his associates.
In , capos Nicholas Corozzo and Leonard DiMaria were released from prison after serving ten years for racketeering and loansharking charges in New York and Florida.
That same year, US law enforcement recognized Corozzo as the Boss of the Gambino crime family, with his brother Joseph Corozzo as the family Consigliere, and John D'Amico as a highly regarded member with the Corozzo brothers.
In July , Domenico Cefalu became the official boss of the Gambino crime family. His ascension was seen as a return to the old-fashion way of running a Mafia family.
He replaced Peter Gotti , who had been sentenced to life imprisonment in Gregory DePalma , the Gambino family capo, offered Garcia the position of made man.
However, the FBI investigation ceased in when Garcia's cover was in danger of being blown. But, with sufficient evidence to convict DePalma and several other high-ranking mafiosi, DePalma was arrested and convicted to twelve years in federal prison thanks in large part to Garcia's efforts.

By DiMaiolo Santolo December 4, Gotti followed the old school Mafioso traditions closely. He felt the boss of the family needed to show respect to the made members and Castellano was doing anything but.
Gotti admired and respected Dellacroce who also followed old school rules. Many of them spent in the court room as Gotti was tried over and over.
Finally on April 2, Gotti and his Consigliere Frank LoCascio were convicted and received life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Die Auseinandersetzung zwischen Sizilianern und Nichtsizilianern sollte später immer wieder eine Rolle in den internen Auseinandersetzungen spielen, siehe insbesondere die spätere Öffnung der Unione Siciliana für Nicht-Sizilianer.
Andererseits verfügte die US-amerikanische Mafia und andere italienische Gruppen im Gegensatz zur Heimat nicht über das illegale Gewaltmonopol , sondern standen in Konkurrenz mit anderen ethnischen Gruppen, insbesondere den Iren und den Angehörigen der Kosher Nostra ; aus diesem Grund wurde die Mitgliedschaft nicht nur nach Herkunft geprägt, wie etwa in Italien oder auf Sizilien , sondern war taktisch bestimmt.

April — misslang und zur Bildung des National Crime Syndicate führte. Experts believe that Anastasia's underboss Carlo Gambino helped orchestrate the hit to take over the family.
Gambino partnered with Meyer Lansky to control gambling interests in Cuba. The family's fortunes grew through , when Gambino appointed his brother-in-law Paul Castellano as boss upon his death.
Castellano infuriated upstart capo John Gotti , who orchestrated Castellano's murder in Gravano's cooperation brought down Gotti, along with most of the top members of the Gambino family.
Beginning in , the family was headed by Frank Cali until his assassination outside his Staten Island home on March 13, The origins of the Gambino crime family can be traced back to the faction of newly transplanted mafiosi from Palermo, Sicily who were originally led by Ignazio Lupo.
When he and his partner by business and marriage, Giuseppe Morello , were sent to prison for counterfeiting in , Salvatore "Toto" D'Aquila , one of Lupo's chief captains, took over.
As other gangs formed in New York, they acknowledged Morello as their boss of bosses. In , Giuseppe Morello and Ignazio Lupo were sentenced to 30 years in prison for counterfeiting.
With the Morello family weakened, D'Aquila used the opportunity to establish the dominance of what was now his own Palermitani family in East Harlem.
D'Aquila quickly used his ties to other Mafia leaders in the United States to create a network of influence and connections and was soon a powerful force in New York.
By , more Italian gangs had formed in New York City. A third Sicilian gang was formed by Alfred Mineo in Brooklyn. In south Brooklyn, first Johnny Torrio , then Frankie Yale were leading a new and rising organization.
In the Camorra had assassinated Nicholas Morello , head of the Morello gang. In response, D'Aquila allied with the Morellos to fight the Camorra.
In , both Morano and Vollero were convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. With their leadership gone, the two Camorra gangs disappeared and D'Aquila and the Schiro family in Brooklyn took over many of their rackets in Brooklyn.
It was about this time that Joe Masseria , another former Morello captain, began asserting his influence over the Lower East Side's Little Italy and began to come into conflict with D'Aquila's operations there, as Prohibition approached.
In , the United States outlawed the production and sale of alcoholic beverages Prohibition , creating the opportunity for an extremely lucrative illegal racket for the New York gangs.
Masseria had taken over the Morello family interests, and by the mids, had begun to amass power and influence to rival that of D'Aquila. By the late s, D'Aquila and Masseria were headed for a showdown.
In September , Maranzano was himself assassinated in his office by a squad of contract killers. Luciano kept Maranzano's five families and added a Commission to mediate disputes and prevent more gang warfare.
Mangano also received a seat on the new Commission. Vincent Mangano now took over the family, with Joseph Biondo as consigliere and Albert Anastasia as underboss.
Vincent Mangano still believed in the Old World mob traditions of "honor", "tradition", "respect" and "dignity. To compensate for loss of massive revenues with the end of Prohibition in , Vincent Mangano moved his family into extortion, union racketeering, and illegal gambling operations including horse betting, running numbers and lotteries.
In reality, the Club was a cover for Murder, Inc. Anastasia was the operating head of Murder, Inc. Anastasio was one of the family's biggest earners, steering millions of dollars in kickbacks and payoffs into the family's coffers.
Anastasio made no secret of his ties to the mob; he only had to say "my brother Albert" to get his point across. With the family's backing, the Brooklyn waterfront was Anastasio's bailiwick for 30 years.
Around this time, Carlo Gambino was promoted within the Mangano family, along with another future boss, Gambino's cousin Paul Castellano. Anastasia and Mangano were usually in conflict, even though they worked together for 20 years.
On numerous occasions, Anastasia and Vincent Mangano came close to physical conflict. Vincent Mangano felt uncomfortable with Anastasia's close ties to Lucky Luciano , Frank Costello , Joseph Bonanno and other top mobsters outside his family.
Mangano was also jealous of Anastasia's strong power base in Murder Inc. In April , Vincent Mangano disappeared without a trace, while his brother Phillip was found dead.
However, it is generally believed that Anastasia murdered both of them. Called to face the Commission , Anastasia refused to accept guilt for the Mangano murders.
However, Anastasia did claim that Vincent Mangano had been planning to kill him. Anastasia was already running the family in Vincent Mangano's "absence" and the Commission members were intimidated by Anastasia.
With the support of Frank Costello , boss of the Luciano crime family , the Commission confirmed Anastasia's ascension as boss of what was now the Anastasia crime family.
Carlo Gambino , a wily character with designs on the leadership himself, maneuvered himself into the position of consigliere. The former boss of Murder, Inc.
With Costello as an ally, Anastasia came to control the Commission. Costello's bitter rival was Vito Genovese , a former underboss for Lucky Luciano.
Since , Genovese had been scheming to remove Costello from power but was not powerful enough to face Anastasia. Anastasia's own brutal actions soon created a favorable climate in New York for his removal.
In , Anastasia ordered the murder of a Brooklyn man, Arnold Schuster , who had aided in the capture of the bank robber Willie Sutton.
Anastasia did not like the fact that Schuster had helped the police. The New York families were outraged by this gratuitous killing that raised a large amount of public furor.
Genovese and Lansky soon recruited Carlo Gambino to the conspiracy by offering him the chance to replace Anastasia and become boss himself.
In May , Frank Costello escaped a Genovese-organized murder attempt with a minor injury and decided to resign as boss.
They decided to kill Anastasia. On October 25, , several masked gunmen murdered Anastasia while he was sitting in the barbershop at the Park Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan.
As Anastasia sat in the barber's chair, the three assailants rushed in, shoved the barber out of the way, and started shooting.
The wounded Anastasia allegedly lunged at his killers, but only hit their reflections in the wall mirror.
Anastasia died at the scene. With Anastasia's death, Carlo Gambino became boss of what was now called the Gambino crime family.
Joseph Biondo was appointed underboss, however, by , was replaced with Aniello Dellacroce. Gambino quickly built the family into the most powerful crime family in the United States.
He was helped by Meyer Lansky 's offshore gaming houses in Cuba and the Bahamas, a lucrative business for the Cosa Nostra.
In , Joseph "Joe Bananas" Bonanno , the head of the Bonanno crime family , and Joseph Magliocco , the new boss of the Profaci crime family , conspired to kill Gambino and his allies on the Commission.
However, the man entrusted with the job, Joseph Colombo , instead revealed the plot to Gambino.
In , Gambino allegedly used his power to orchestrate the shooting of Colombo. Gambino and his allies were unhappy about Colombo's high public profile.
Johnson was tentatively linked to the Gambino family, but no one else was charged in the shooting. Gambino's influence also stretched into behind-the-scenes control of the Lucchese crime family, led by Carmine "Mr.
Gribbs" Tramunti. Under Gambino, the family gained particularly strong influence in the construction industry. It acquired behind-the-scenes control of Teamsters Local , which controlled access to most building materials in the New York City area and could literally bring most construction jobs in New York City to a halt.
On October 15, , Carlo Gambino died at home of natural causes. Gambino appeared to believe that his crime family would benefit from Castellano's focus on white collar businesses.
Castellano's succession was confirmed at a meeting on November 24, with Dellacroce present. Castellano arranged for Dellacroce to remain as underboss while directly running traditional Cosa Nostra activities such as extortion, robbery, and loansharking.
When Castellano became boss, he negotiated a division of responsibilities between himself and Dellacroce. Castellano took control of the so-called " white collar crimes " that included stock embezzlement and other big money rackets.
Dellacroce retained control of the traditional Cosa Nostra activities. The DeMeo crew allegedly committed from 74 to murders during the late s and mids.
As Castellano became more powerful in the Gambino family, he started to make large amounts of money from construction concrete.
Castellano's son Philip was the president of Scara-Mix Concrete Corporation, which exercised a near monopoly on Staten Island on construction concrete.
In response to the rise of the Gambino family, federal prosecutors targeted the family leadership. On March 31, a federal grand jury indicted Castellano and 20 other Gambino members and associates with charges of drug trafficking, murder, theft, and prostitution.
Gotti was ambitious and wanted to be boss himself. Gotti rapidly became dissatisfied with Castellano's leadership, regarding the new boss as being too isolated and greedy.
The boss lacked street credibility , and those who had paid their dues running street level jobs did not respect him.
Gotti also had an economic interest: he had a running beef with Castellano on the split Gotti took from hijackings at Kennedy Airport.The Genovese family ordered murders of all top Westies to gain the control over the Westside.
