Weird NJ Takes A Look At Al Capone And Bayville, Report Says

Plenty of rumors surround Crystal Lake Healthcare and Rehabilitation building

Though best known for his criminal career in Chicago, Al “Scarface” Capone actually began his life of lawlessness in Brooklyn, and expanded the reach of his

Prohibition-era crime syndicate into New Jersey and Philadelphia, smuggling and bootlegging liquor, bribing government figures and dealing in prostitution in the early 1920s, according to a Weird NJ article in the Asbury Park Press.

Fans of the popular HBO series “Boardwalk Empire” see the criminal exploits of a young (fictionalized) Capone at the Jersey Shore in Atlantic City. But how much time did that crime boss actually spend in the Garden State and just what was he doing here?

That’s what Weird NJ wondered ever since we first began hearing rumors of Al Capone’s summer home being located somewhere in Bayville, near Toms River in Ocean County.
