FORT LEE, NJ -- (SBN) -- The former home of notorious mob boss Albert Anastasia will be auctioned soon by the New York auction house Guernsey's. The 1.3-acre estate at 75 Bluff Road was most recently owned by real estate developer Arthur Imperatore, and also counts among its owners casino mogul Del Webb and his close friend, comedian Buddy Hackett.
Built in 1947 to exacting specifications from Anastasia, who headed the mob's "Murder Inc." assassination squad, the house has foot-and-a-half thick walls, which Anastasia hoped would protect him from an attack. Anastasia was murdered in the barbershop of the Park Sheraton Hotel in 1957.
