It Happened On #30

Hip-hip-horay! Another weekend edition of It Happened On

It happened on October 27 1904…New York City Mayor George McClellan takes the controls on the inaugural run of the city’s subway At 7 p.m. that evening, the subway opened to the general public, and more than 100,000 people paid a nickel to take their first ride under Manhattan

Also on October 27 1940, John Joseph Gotti, Jr., the future head of the Gambino crime family is born in the Bronx, New York

On June 10, 2002, Gotti died of throat cancer at age 61 at a medical center for federal prisoners in Springfield, Missouri

Anyone remember that retarded reality show, Growing Up Gotti? That was a joke
