WHERE VITO HUNG HIS HAT

An eight-bedroom, English Tudor home at 110 Longfellow Avenue in Staten Island is going for an asking price of $2.9 million. Among its selling points: two fireplaces, an “English pub” in the basement, a four-car garage and an in-ground pool. Other homes in this quite affluent neighborhood could boast of similar characteristics to tantalize prospective buyers. None, however, could boast of having been immortalized in film; this one certainly could: it was the home of the fictional Corleone family via the sensational “The Godfather.”

After 50 years, the Norton family is selling their celluloid-famed house (see listing) and perhaps leaving the gun but, most importantly, taking the cannoli with them…but not without a whisper of intrigue. The realtor in this “offer you can’t refuse” is Connie Profaci, the daughter-in-law of Joe Profaci, celebrated “olive oil king” by day and founder of the Colombo crime family by night.

The Gothamist states: “Even though the Profaci family has since gone legit, we are superstitious men, and know that there are no such things as coincidences; could Luca Brasi have paid someone a visit?”

But Luca wound-up sleeping with the fishes (didn’t he?); but, then again, you can’t keep a good mobster down.
