Louis DiNapoli

Louis DiNapoli

Louis DiNapoli (born 1938) is a New York City mobster and soldier in the Genovese crime family. DiNapoli grew up in the East Harlem section of Manhattan and became a made member of the Genovese family in the early 1980s, joining the 116th Street Crew, which was headed by his older brother Vincent DiNapoli. The crew was heavily involved in labor racketeering in the N.Y.C. District Council of Carpenters, and used its influence to extort money from New York construction companies and contractors.

While Vincent DiNapoli served a prison sentence in the 1980s, Louis DiNapoli and soldier Louis Moscatiello handled the Carpenter Union rackets. Louis DiNapoli and his other brother Joseph "Joey Dee" DiNapoli, a captain who currently serves on the Lucchese crime family's ruling panel, were arrested for labor racketeering charges during the mid 1990s.
