Hey listen up wise guys, the home of former mob boss and notorious Chicago gangster Al Capone is up for sale. As the listing states, "This was AL CAPONES Chicago Home WOW". Wow, indeed. There's really not much to look at, and there aren't any interior photos in the listing. However this piece of Chicago history can be had for only $225,000. The red brick Grand Crossings home was built in 1908 and has three bedrooms on each floor. Capone and his family moved into the home way back in 1923, before he was known for terrorizing the city. According to DNAinfo, the current owner has been living in the home since 1963 when she purchased it for $29,500. The home looks like it could use some work, but maybe there's some buried treasure hiding somewhere on the property that will pay for the repairs.
