I've lived in one of these apartments since 2019 and this house is very special. There is a stately feeling to the place despite it being given the Landlord Special. 12 foot ceilings, glass doorknobs, big beautiful windows, gorgeous crown molding. I would have loved to see this place in its glory. One of my closets has a pushbutton light switch nestled in the doorframe so that when you open the door the light automatically turns on and when you shut it, it automatically turns off. I also have a curious metal plate with what looks like a room number on my bedroom door. I've always wondered what it's history was.

Was Capone visiting Hopkins for an STD?

Yes, after his release from prison. Johns Hopkins actually refused his treatment and he was treated at Union Memorial for syphilis with the new wonder-drug Penicillin.

It's interesting how much more ostentatious it is than his Chicago home, which was a regular single family in the style of a two-flat (two condos--still probably 3500 square feet).
