Lucky Luciano, 'Boardwalk Empire,' dining at John's of 12th Street today

Earlier, we mentioned that crews for "Boardwalk Empire" would be filming in the East Village today, possibly bringing an old-timey feel to the neighborhood.

Well! Turns out they are filming at John's of 12th Street... already an old-timey-feeling restaurant. (And we mean that in a positive way!) Han Shan just sent us this photo of who we think is Lucky Luciano.

Very appropriate location. Do the producers know that this Italian restaurant was there when Luciano lived at East 10th Street and First Avenue as an up-and-coming hood? I believe a Mafia don ate his last meal there before being shot down the street....

They do. They've worked with the lower east side history project as consultants, I believe.

Lucky Luciano died in Italy of a heart attack in '62.
He wasn't pinched on the street in NY after a last meal at John's. Nice story, though.
