Al Capone’s Childhood Home Is For Sale

Al Capone wasn’t always a murderous gangster running bootleg, prostitution and gambling rings out of Chicago.

The mobster was born in 1899 in Brooklyn. And as a child and teenager, he lived in a nondescript Park Slope townhouse before moving to Chicago in 1919. Now Capone’s former home at 21 Garfield Place is back on the market with an asking price of $2.9 million.

The property was sold for $2.42 million in early 2018, according to city records, after it had been listed for about six months.

The 20-foot-wide townhouse, which has undergone a full renovation, is currently divided into three units: There’s a three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom owner’s duplex with a garden, plus two separate one-bedroom apartments above it that also come with private outdoor space and can be used for rental income.
