PHOTO GALLERY: 1977 Lyndhurst car bombing that killed notorious mobster Danny Greene
Forty-one years ago on October 6, 1977, notorious Irish American mobster, Danny Greene was killed in a car bomb outside his dentist office. Clevelanders may be familiar with the movie "Kill the Irishman." Those who lived in the city in the 1970s remember him well. He was involved in a mob war with factions of the Italian mafia that led to more than 30 bombings across the city. The violence became so frequent, a local newspaper coined Cleveland as "Bomb City, USA."
