Meet Nicholas Bianco aka “Nicky” aka “ Nicky B” Nicky Bianco was a Gallo Gang shooter before he became a member of the Patriarca Crime Family
Nicky was like Joey Gallo, he was a warrior..His ethos was.”I was born a man, I will die a man”. Unlike the flamboyant Crazy Joey, Nicky was low-key, and level headed.
In a finger snap, he would kill for Raymond “RayPat” Patriarca Sr. Raymond loved his composure, and courage, and he moved Nicky up the leader ladder to a spot in the Patriarca high command. Nicky was Raymond’s acting boss while he was in the slammer
I knew Nicky and I will go into greater detail in my new book . But here is a tasty tidbit
Nicky had a ton of heat on him from a beef he had in Providence.. He went west to Hollywood to hide out until things cooled off back home. Nicky stayed with a friend of mine. .While he was with my pal, he knifed a guy . I had occasion to meet with Nicky years later. . I mentioned this incident to Nicky,
and it knocked him for a loop. Anthony Fiato
