Ravenite Social Club information
Now a designer shoe store, this was once the Ravenite Social Club, a mobster hangout originally known as the Alto Knights Social Club. It was right here that big hitters such as Lucky Luciano and John Gotti (as well as the FBI, who kept a watchful eye from the building across the street) logged time. Only the shop's tile floor remains from the day, the shop windows once an intimidating brick wall.
