raysmob150piz.jpgAccording to a new book called Mob Boss, the original location of NYC's iconic Ray's Pizza was home to an ongoing narcotics operation run by the Luchese crime family. Onetime mob boss Alfonso "Little Al" D'Arco claims that Ray's owner Ralph "Raffie" Cuomo made his primary income through drug dealing; the restaurant's basement became a hangout for Luchese's "Prince Street Crew," who handled cash and heroin "right beneath the pizza ovens."
