Al Capone’s House For Sale

Andrew Barber 0

Now that’s gangsta. 

via the Chicago Tribune:

The home at 7244 S. Prairie Ave. once owned by mobster Al Capone and his family has hit the market for $450,000. It’s a hefty sum considering similar two-flats in that working-class South Side neighborhood are selling for $180,000 to $230,000. But no other home in Chicago can match the history of the modest brick house that has had just two owners since Capone’s mother died in 1952.

One of these street dudes should put their money where their mouth is.  Can you imagine MTV Cribs stopping by for a visit? “Yeah, here go the tommy gun cellar”.  Windy Wilson posted up on the couch, Treach from Naughty by Nature sitting in the basement in a lawn chair with the lights off (*sorry, obscure Cribs reference*).

I’ve lost it.
