And now Alcatraz Island it is a place to see the first time I visited Alcatraz and saw what’s there I did not want even to drive fast so I don’t break the law it is something else specially if you never seen inside a prison before that.
Few of well-known criminals, Such as Al Capone, George Machine-Gun Kelly and Alvin Karpis (First Public Enemy#1) and Arthur “Doc” Barker did time on Alcatraz.
Most of the prisoners incarcerated there were not well-known gangster, but prisoners who refused to conform to the rules and considered violent and dangerous or escape risk.
The maximum population capacity of this prison was 336 but this prison never reached its capacity it gets to 260-275 only. There are more about Alcatraz. To track your steps while in San Francisco Click Here
