BROOKLYN - The city's Department of Parks & Recreation is being told it may want to re-examine the company running a Brooklyn golf course.City Comptroller William C. Thompson Jr. (D-NYC) sent a letter Tuesday expressing concerns that the company may have ties to the Colombo crime family. East Coast Golf won a 20-year contract last year to run the Marine Park Golf Course. Thompson referred to federal court papers that claim East Coast's president, Dominick Logozzo, has a financial relationship with Craig Marino. Federal prosecutors called Marino "a soldier in the Colombo family," and he was indicted last spring with nine other people on racketeering charges. The New York Times reported that the two were partners in the Zone Diet food service and that they were childhood friends. Logozzo has not been implicated in any criminal activity.
