Keeping New Port Richey Clean and Comfortable
New Port Richey, Florida’s 1970s population growth came with service-industry stalwarts and some criminal elements to liven the local folklore.
As an influx of 1960s subdivisions started the New Port Richey population spike, some criminal-minded organizations thought they could capitalize on the local economic success.
New York mafia families moved to Florida in the 1970s to take over the garbage industry and set up a dog track in Pasco County, where New Port Richey resides.
North of New Port Richey, during the same time, we established R.J. Kielty Plumbing, Heating and Cooling. Our contribution to the community took on a more ethical and beneficial approach to business.
While we established our footing in New Port Richey in the late 1970s, the FBI moved in to clear out the organized crime. Agent Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco, compiled evidence on Tampa Bay mafia men just south of New Port Richey from the King’s Court bottle club. Johnny Depp portrayed Pistone in the 1997 film Donnie Brasco, which came from Pistone’s book. King’s Court bottle club still exists as a property of a local church. The mafia lost its footing in the area once the FBI cleaned out the organized crime

New Port Richey History
With roots reaching back into the earliest days of America, New Port Richey achieved incorporation in 1924. The Pithlachascotee (Cotee) River runs directly through the city’s heart, creating local cultural depth. Parks and a refuge line the riverside with boardwalks, boat ramps, and benches for community enjoyment.
Dolphins and manatees frequently travel the Cotee River giving residents and tourists added entertainment.
Local festivals and special events celebrate the Native American history of the area and newer additions to the city’s culture. Citizens use the city’s parks and facilities to produce community-engaging gatherings that strengthen the city’s bond.
During the 1920s, the beauty and culture of New Port Richey brought Hollywood icons, like Thomas Meighan, who sought a winter haven. Meighan and others inspired the Richey Suncoast Theatre’s construction and the Hacienda Hotel. The Great Depression ended New Port Richey’s bid to become another Hollywood, but the impact remains today.
Richey Suncoast Theatre began as a movie theatre. After surviving shutdowns and re-openings, the facility settled into its current renovated role as a community theatre. The community is currently renovating the Hacienda Hotel, which earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
Restaurants, boutique shops, breweries, and a host of businesses flank the historical landmarks, including the quaintly scenic downtown square. Murals adorn several buildings to signify the rich culture of the residential community.
The 80-acre James E. Grey Preserve, six parks, and a recreation and aquatics center provide ample family fun. Park entry and boat-launch require no charge.
