Bill Shipp was the owner of the Bowery Hotel in Little Italy.

BiographyEdit

Hardened by years of growing up on the East Side, Bowery Bill was known to be one of the most intimidating proprietors in the city. He gained a partnership with the Barzini family in the mid-forties in hope of acheiving the necessary revenue to improve his hotel.

In 1945, Shipp became plagued with unruly tenants who were not intmidated by his threats, an the Barzini family refused to assist. He turned to Aldo Trapani, an outsider with ties to the Corleone family for help. Trapani evicted the tenants, and received protection from the hotel.

Despite this, Shipp maintained some connections with the Barzinis, whether out of loyalty or fear, and allowed them to hole up FBI agent D. Cooper in one of his hotel rooms.
