The House Where Gangster Jack “Legs” Diamond Was Killed Is for Sale

From a New York Times story by Julie Lasky headlined “The House in New York Where “Legs” Diamond Was Killed Is for Sale”:

Whoever murdered the Prohibition-era gangster Jack “Legs” Diamond was never prosecuted for the crime. But William Kennedy, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist who owns the 1857 house in Albany, N.Y., where Mr. Diamond was whacked, is certain that the deed was done by a couple of policemen.

“Right there,” said Mr. Kennedy, 95, pointing to the spot in the bedroom where Mr. Diamond, after celebrating a not-guilty verdict in a criminal trial, was shot three times in the head in the early hours of Dec. 18, 1931.
