Last month the Snyder Avenue home of former mob boss Angelo Bruno was recommended for historical designation by the city by Celeste Morello.
The historical landmark advisory board reviewed this proposal and believes that there is no grounds for this mob-related location at 934 Snyder Ave. to become a historical landmark.
More from the Associated Press:
The main argument for declaring it a city landmark was that federal investigations into his affairs shaped the way organized crime was tracked and prosecuted.
But the advisory board said that argument was weak and didn’t have a direct tie-in to Philadelphia.
The committee’s recommendation now goes to the city’s Historical Commission, which will have the final say.
