I have known people from the New York metropolitan area and none of them are the stereotypes depicted by very talented actors on this show. I know for a while people would brag about being in the “this or that mafia” but frankly being part of a criminal organization is nothing to brag about. Many people who brag about being in any sort of a mafia meet an unhappy end. The series followed the Orson Welles strategy that you get a happy ending if you stop the story at the right time. The odds were good the family was about to be whacked, so ending it as they were eating dinner at a restaurant was the right time.
