Al Capone's Basin Front House

From locals such as Clydie Washington who grew around the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, to history makers such as Al Capone and Thomas Edison, Bungalow Park residents have a great story to tell.

Clydie Washington grew up in Bungalow Park, one of 12 children raised in the neighborhood; off what her Dad made as an electrician and party boat captain. And Clydie says if you lived there, you better have liked fish. Because you ate it for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Thomas Edison toyed with a concrete house on one end of this neighborhood and gangster Al Capone hid on the other; no doubt watching over his contraband smuggled right under his basin front house.
