On sale $651K Peter Gotti Long Island home during crime days

The childhood home of mobster Peter Gotti on Long Island has sold for $651,000.

The Post has heard that the Long Island home where the late mobster Peter Gotti and his then-wife, Catherine, once lived was sold for $651,000.

During the height of his criminal days, New York property documents show that the Gottis owned the house in 1976. The couple sold the house 10 years later, however, for $185,000.

The house was sold again on Dec. 17 after undergoing a number of new upgrades.

The former Gambino crime boss's four-bedroom, three-bathroom house, which died in prison on Thursday, measures 1,702 square feet and sits on a 0.24-acre lot.

The first floor has a spacious floor plan and a large kitchen island.

The land also has in-ground sprinklers and an open backyard for barbecues and recreation with a large porch.

It is three blocks from the Long Island Railroad, making it convenient to get to New York City.

After his 2003 arrest on racketeering and other charges, Peter was sentenced to 25 years in jail, arguing that he took possession of the Gambino crime family after his mafia boss associate, John Gotti, was jailed.

Catherine, who had divorced from Peter a year after his jail term, accused him in a divorce trial of cutting her off from his meager pension while hiding ill-gotten millions.

During her court hearing on Sept. 22, 2004, she said, "He's stubborn to anything that comes to my advantage."

She demanded a share of the pension and at least partial ownership in a scathing letter to the federal judge of the $600,000 Howard Beach home that was in Peter's name. Catherine also owns the building she grew up in.

In 2006, their divorce was finalized.

His lawyer claimed in a statement that the former Gambino crime family boss died in jail on Thursday after losing two bids for early release.

Peter Gotti, the brother of John "Dapper Don" Gotti, died at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina, at the age of 81.

Lewis Kasman, a retired mobster and John Gotti confidant, told the AP that he had been suffering from thyroid issues and was blind in one eye.
