Last week, an offer was made that many couldn't afford not to refuse when the “The Godfather” house on Staten Island was put on the market for $2.9 million. But a conspiracy may be afoot: the real estate broker who is selling the site of the Corleone mansion is the daughter-in-law of the real-life Godfather who was an inspiration for Don Corleone’s character.
