98 Prince Street, North End
Located along the narrow streets of Boston's North End, the unassuming mob headquarters is squeezed among a number of row houses. The house can be found one house down from the intersections of Prince and Thatcher Streets. Heading north on Prince St. will bring you to the site of The Brinks Job, walking south will take you to Little Italy's Hanover St.
Right down the street from the old Brink's garage emerged the headquarters of Mafia underboss Gennaro "Jerry" Angiulo. The FBI bugged the place for three months in 1981 and those tapes eventually led to the downfall of the Patriarca family.
In 1981, former FBI supervisor John Morris met Bulger and Flemmi at the Hotel Colonnade and played them one of the 98 Prince St. tapes, a recorded chat between Angiulo and Zannino about killing their associate Nicolo Giso's girlfriend, Eva D. "Liz" McDonough of Revere. Over glasses of wine, Flemmi told Morris that he felt the threat was real. Bulger gave Morris a lift home and Flemmi kept the tape and from then on, Bulger and Flemmi began referring to Morris as "Vino."
And Flemmi's hunch turned out to be correct: On March 20, 1984, three years after the murder discussion, a person in a ski mask fired three bullets at McDonough's head in a bar on Commercial Street in the North End. One bullet grazed her head and she fell to the floor unconscious.
