Murder Inc. mobster’s Fort Lee palace back on auction block (PHOTOS)
FORT LEE — The palatial, multi-million-dollar home that once belonged to a New York crime boss can still be yours.
The Palisades cliffs mansion overlooking the Hudson was put up for auction back in December with a starting bid of $5.5 million.
But the 1.3-acre property will be back on the auction block in June, according to Guernsey’s, the auction house handling the sale of the estate, which is described as having “180-degree views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline extending from the George Washington Bridge to Lower Manhattan’s Freedom Tower."
The estate was built by Albert Anastasia, of Murder Incorporated fame, in 1947. The Mafia organization was responsible for killing scores of people during the 1950s. Anastasia was gunned down in 1957 in the chair of a Manhattan barber shop.
The home is now owned by NY Waterway founder Arthur Imperatore, who decided to sell after his wife's death last March.
The home once also belonged to New York Yankees owner Del Webb and comedian Buddy Hackett.
The mansion's property tax bill last year was more than $81,000.
