Grew up near him. Always in the news in the 80s/early 90s. A cute (in a devious way) lunkhead rich NY guy that you wouldn’t trust as far as you could toss him.
A few friends got screwed on the Taj Mahal build by his company. big time. Any respect for him gone by ’92.
He was enamored by Italian Mafia bosses. [there were lots of little ones in Jersey] but he was too clumsy to pull deals off right. Too loud, not clever enough.
