Thanks Joe! p.s. Give Khoi an A.

D. Pig: If you follow the link you'll see that Bell has his detractors.

Thanks for the good word, David. Re: Meucci, it's a controversial claim, but at least it made for one of only two truly great lines in "The Godfather, Part III."

I am costuming a feature film which concentrates on Bensonhurst
and the surrounding area in the late 1980's and early 90's. there
are street gangs(like the Bath Ave Boys) and some mobsters of which the characters are based on. im looking for visual as well as
advice as to how to dress these people. any suggestions? what kind of gear did these people wear? hair?
