Old-school gangsters can be a stylish, dapper lot even when doing time.
Big Al’s digs at East State have a certain “I’ve got clout even in the slammer” big time gangster charm and
the cell, complete with fringed lamps, comfy chairs, and Oriental carpet is a tourist attraction and proof that Capone did soft time at this lockup. A later incarceration at Alcatraz was not so comfy. In 1947, he died at his Palm Island, Florida home in now on the market in Miami for $9,5. It is not being sold by Capones.
