No bribes or back-door deals necessary. Al Capone’s former Park Slope townhouse, where he lived in the 1920s before heading to Chicago, has just hit the market for $2.85 million, reports the Post. “Scarface” may not recognize his former home today, as listing broker Bren Salamon notes that while the exterior remains nondescript, inside, the three-family residence has been completely renovated with high-end appliances, outdoor decks, and all new finishes.

The home is divided into three units. The first level is a three-bedroom duplex with a 30-foot living/dining room, separate family room, and access from the lower level to a large private backyard. Each of the upper floors has one bedroom and a private terrace.

Salamon said to the Post, “If Capone were living here today he wouldn’t need bootlegging to make a living. The upper rental units can easily fetch $6,000 a month and Park Slope has terrific bars and restaurants.”

Plus, the Capone connection certainly is a selling bonus. Just this past Saturday, a 1920s diamond pocket watch that had belonged to the mobster, along with a handwritten musical composition he composed in Alcatraz in the 1930s, sold at auction for a whopping $84,375 and $18,750 respectively.
