One of Eastern State Penitentiary’s most famous inmates was Al Capone.

And of course the prison has Capone’s cell, restored to the way it was when Capone was there.  Capone wasn’t any ordinary inmate though – he had all the comforts of home with him in prison.  And I highly doubt that anyone gave him any trouble for it either.  We even got to hear the music that Capone would play in his cell.

Cozy, isn’t it.

At any rate, when you turn around from Capone’s cell, you see this sight:

It’s the exit where Capone was supposed to walk through when he was released after serving his time in prison.  The route was changed though because of the throng of people waiting outside.
