I am beginning to post stories about growing up with gangsters. If you are a child, cousin, uncle, aunt... etc and feel like talking please don't hesitate to write to me on my website here.
My dad was Allen Smiley, best pal and partner of Ben Siegel from 1937 until the night of Ben's murder. Dad was sitting on the same sofa when Ben was shot.
I always tell people who don't understand my way of thinking; ' I come from a different tribe.'
