the most powerful Mafia family today. They are expected to move into Cleveland and Youngstown, Ohio. The boss of this faction is James Genovese.

Many mobsters now are ?retiring? because there is nothing left for them in the family. A lot of them are going to the DA and making deals to testify against their colleagues in their trial. Take the Gambino family for example, at one point they had over 250 members and hundreds of connections with police and judges, and even Senators! Now they have less than half the members they originally had. It has become very hard for the Mafia to hold a strong foot in society
