Hudson County Park in Bayonne, New Jersey, opposite the docks. Mafiosi John DiGilio, who controlled the dockers union Local 1588 from the mid 1970's till his murder in the late 1980's, used this park to meet high ranking members of the union. The docks of New York and New Jersey have for generations been synonymous with organised crime, with the Genovese family in control of the New Jersey waterfront and the Gambinos in control of the New York side.
