The Stracci family had a strong presence in Atlantic City, as well as the Greco family from Philadelphia, which was located nearby. The Straccis controlled the linen services and the waste removal in Atlantic City, as well as the illegal casinos in the Jersey Palisades.
Atlantic City legalized gambling in 1976, making it the only other area of the country other than Las Vegas to have legalized gambing. The Corleone family also became involved in the city during this time, financing the construction of their hotel and casino, the Palazzo Azzurro.
In 1979, Michael Corleone called a meeting with the Commission in the penthouse of the Palazzo Azzurro, where he returned all of their shares in his various casinos. Shortly after, most of the Commmission was wiped out by Joey Zasa's hitmen in a daring helicopter raid, leaving only Michael, Don Altobello, and a few other Dons and associates alive.
