“Crazy Joe” Russo

About “Crazy Joe” Russo

Vinny wouldn’t have had the opportunity to run his own business if it weren’t for his Grandpa, lovingly referred to around Staten Island as “Crazy Joe.” A long running entrepreneur in Staten Island, Grandpa Joe was an immigrant who built his business from the ground up, running Crazy Joe’s auto shop for many years. Grandpa Joe beams with pride about how well Vinny is doing, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a lesson or two to teach his grandson. Grandpa Joe continually lives up to his nickname – you never know what crazy stuff will come out of his mouth, and you may not even be able to understand it through his thick Italian accent!
