The bank owns it now.
But back in the not-to-distant day, this abandoned Old Westbury mansion served as the primary set for the hit TV series, “Growing Up Gotti.”
As reported in the New York Post, the sprawling property that Victoria Gotti and her three coming-of-age sons once called home was officially purchased by JP Morgan Chase National Bank on Dec. 7 for $2.65 million. The estate had been foreclosed on and auctioned off on Oct. 26, with the bank coming in as the highest bidder.
A reality television series that ran for three seasons from 2004-2005, “Growing Up Gotti” chronicled the daily lives of Gotti, daughter of the late mafia boss John Gotti, and her three kids. Victoria enjoyed showcasing the “Ritz Carlton” decor of the Birch Hill Court mansion.
Federal agents raided the home, originally owned by John Gotti, in September 2016, reportedly as part of a tax fraud investigation. Abandoned for years, it has become a magnet for YouTubers who explore and document infamous abandoned properties.
One such videographer is BigBankz, whose narrated 2021 video has garnered hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
