Vincent Basciano, also known as "Vinny Gorgeous,"

It’s last exit to Brooklyn for Vinny Gorgeous.
Former Bonanno crime boss Vincent Basciano told a judge Thursday he would rather rot in solitary confinement in Brooklyn than be sent to the Supermax prison in Colorado.
Basciano is awaiting a death penalty trial that will be not be held until spring of 2011 at the earliest because of motions and appeals. The judge was thinking of sending him west to start serving a life sentence for a 2007 racketeering and murder conviction until the new trial starts.
