On this date (June 22) in 1931, an estimated 20,000 people turned out for the funeral of Bronx gangster Daniel Iamascia. The Tammany-linked Iamascia served as aide to beer baron Arthur "Dutch Schultz" Flegeheimer and Mafia leader Ciro "the Artichoke King" Terranova. He was fatally shot after mistaking police officers for rival gangsters.
