Vito Genovese was born on November 21, 1897, in Naples, Italy. Height of 5 ft 7 in (170 cm) and his family lived a quiet life in the suburbs of New Jersey.
As a child in Italy, Genovese completed school only to the American equivalent of the fifth grade. In 1913, when Genovese was 15, his family immigrated to the United States and took up residence in Manhattan’s community of Little Italy.
Genovese started his criminal career stealing merchandise from pushcart vendors and running errands for mobsters. He later collected money from people who played illegal lotteries. At 19, Genovese spent a year in prison for illegal possession of a firearm.
