Hells Angels ride off from E. 3rd clubhouse

The Hells Angels have been vacating their notorious East Village clubhouse and residence in recent days, an exodus spurred by the apparent transfer of their six-story building to a buyer.

The new owner, Nathan Blatter, president of the Whitestone Realty Company in Brooklyn, said he was not available for immediate comment.

So where are the fearsome self-styled bad boys heading on their Harley hogs after 50 years at 77 E. Third St.?

“We don’t know,” said a lean, longhaired member of the famed outlaw motorcycle club. As he moved packing material out through the clubhouse door over the weekend, he shielded his face from this reporter’s camera. Two motorcycles belonging to Angels were parked outside. Across the street was a bright orange pickup truck splashed with yellow lightning bolts and the words “Hell Bound” pierced with a pitchfork symbol on its tailgate.

Ex-Hells Angels chief 'Mom' Boucher pleads guilty to prison-hatched murder plot

Boucher admits to conspiring to murder high-ranking mafioso Raynald Desjardins

Ex-Hells Angels chief Maurice "Mom" Boucher has pleaded guilty to conspiring to murder a high-ranking Mafia member while both men were behind bars.

Boucher entered the plea Tuesday at the Gouin courthouse, Quebec's Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions confirmed. Jury selection for the trial was set to begin next week.

Boucher plotted to have Raynald Desjardins, a rival in the criminal underworld, killed by another person while they were serving time in separate institutions. The plan never came to fruition.

According to an agreed statement of facts, Boucher conspired with two accomplices to have Desjardins assassinated at the Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines penitentiary in 2015.

Desjardins's case was subject to delays, however, and he wasn't transferred to a federal penitentiary until the next year.
