@ Mount Holly

The sleepy town of Mt. Holly, New Jersey was more than it seemed. In the unsettled years following the Great Depression, it hosted an underground playground that attracted Mafia bosses and players alike. Under the watchful and protective eye of author Samuel Valenza Jr.’s father, the casino was a thriving den for craps, roulette, poker, and slots players. The continuing cooperation of local law enforcement was assured each Saturday morning, when Officer Bucky Squires made his pickup of payoff money held for him in Mom’s icebox.
