'Godfather' House on Sale in Staten Island


Movie fans already know the "Godfather" house, located in the New York City borough of Staten Island, inside and out. It's where Don Corleone lived. But few ever imagined that they themselves could live in mafia high style. Curbed.com has the scoop.

It takes a lot to get us interested in Staten Island property -- at least until that subway becomes a reality -- but when a house hits the market with its own English pub in the basement, and that's the second most interesting thing about it, we definitely take notice. The "Post" 's Jennifer Gould Keil reported today that the English Tudor mansion (and its lush lawns) which played a pretty darn important role in "The Godfather" has hit the market for $2.9 million. The Corleones' crib has actually been owned by the same family for over 50 years, and with that type of emotional attachment, it might be hard to make them an offer they can't refuse. The Longfellow Avenue house has 8 bedrooms, 2 fireplaces and 1 swimming pool. Time for The Situation to trade up?
