Al Capone house in Chicago is on the market for $225,000. Yes, you can boast you live in an infamous mobster’s house if you buy the Al Capone former home.
It’s not a nestled-in-a-gated-community type place. Just your common everyday mobster-type 2-flat in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood.
Al Capone started living here in 1923 per Fox Chicago. I have no clue when he had to flee the premises.
Lucky Remax Signature Homes holds the keys to the famous place. Details are: 3 bedrooms on each floor. 1st floor was rehabbed in 2008 with new kitchen. Jacuzzi tub in 2nd bath. Hardwood floors and enclosed porch for both units.
Al Capone was sent to the recently opened Alcatraz. After release from prison, side effects of syphilis eventually left him with the mental capacity of a 12-year old. He died of a heart attack and is buried in a cemetery in Hillside, Illinois.
