Angelo Ponte

Angelo Ponte (born c. 1924)[1] is an American mobster. He was reportedly active in the Genovese family's carting rackets for many decades. He was careful to cultivate political connections, and managed to have himself named a Knight of Malta by the Roman Catholic Church.

Ponte was a target of the operation wasteland investigation. On 28 January 1997 he pled guilty to participating in a Mafia run operation to control and manipulate the cartage business in New York City.[2]

He is the founder of F. Illi Ponte Ristorante on the West Side highway and has extensive real estate holdings throughout the lower west side of Manhattan.
