ALCAPONE’S PRISON

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, US

alcapone-prison

The American gangster was lodged here for a year in 1929. The inmates in this penitentiary, which started operating in 1829, were confined to solitary, dark and independent cells and not even allowed to interact with others; if the prisoners broke any law, they were severely punished. The 142-year-old history of this facility was marred with numerous cases of murder, suicide and diseases; and its ghost stories are all over the internet.
