1923

For racketeers of Frank Costello's ilk, it was wise to inoculate ones self from Uncle Sam's secret weapon in the battle against organized crime-deportation. On March 26, 1923, Costello took his first step toward becoming a U.S. Citizen by filing a declaration of intent. He gave his address as 234 East 108th Street and his occupation, real estate broker for Koslar Reality.
