I'm pretty sure Limone got made in prison, prior to 2001, but that could be wrong. I think the NE Family approaches the books being closed just like the NYC Families did after 1957; they only make 1 new guy after an older member has died. just attrition, not making a bunch of new guys at a time. So the books aren't completely closed, but they might as well be.
this whole St Laurent thing is really weird, it seems like he has flipped, but maybe not.
regardless, they do not have to float names around NYC before making a guy anymore, though they probably do still get tacit approval of the West Side.
