By Peter Lance THE HUFFINGTON POST After whacking “Big Paul” Castellano and taking control of the Gambino Family in 1985 John Gotti set up headquarters at The Ravenite Social Club – located on the ground floor of a five story brick building at 227 Mulberry St. in Little Italy. Over the next seven years, the FBI’s New York Office (NYO) conducted an around the clock surveillance of the site: taking pictures of The Dapper Don in the street outside the club from a plant or “perch” across the street, bugging his phones and planting dozens of surveillance devices in the building owned by Gambino wiseguy Joseph “Joe The Cat” LaForte.
