The gated Italianate-style home where Murder Inc. kingpin Albert Anastasia hung his fedora is on the market for $6.9 million.

The seven bedroom, seven-and-a-half bath, 6,529-square-foot mansion built in 1947 sits on 1.2 acres on Bluff Road, atop the Palisades Cliffs, and boasts sweeping New York City views.

The current owner bought the estate in June 2016 for $5 million, just days before it was to be sold at auction.

Anastasia is considered a founder of the American Mafia and was involved in racketeering along the New York City waterfront. His syndicate later became the feared Gambino Crime Family.

Authorities wrote in a report that Anastasia was part of, in person or by direction, close to 30 assassinations by ice pick, strangling rope or gun.

"His activity in Murder Inc. left bodies all over America and after the formation of the syndicate, underworld law decreed they could not murder without his approval," according to an FBI report dated Feb. 25, 1954.  

Although he was tried several times on murder and assault charges, authorities say, Anastasia was acquitted after intimidating witnesses. He only ever served time on a charge of carrying a gun in 1923. 

The mafia boss was shot and killed Oct. 25, 1957 while making his daily visit to the barbershop at the Park Sheraton hotel in New York City, in a hit that historians say involved syndicate politics.
