Click on the headline for some great shots of this home.

Al Capone's Miami Beach home - where gangster planned the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and died in 1947 - is to be demolished after new owners bought it for $10.75M

Al Capone's Miami Beach home to be demolished after new owners bought it for $10.75M

The South Florida home, where Capone lived for nearly 20 years, was purchased by a pair of developers this summer, however they don't plan on renovating it. One of the property's new owners, Todd Glaser, told the Herald that the nine-bedroom home sits at three feet below sea level, which has led to extensive flood damage to the property. 'We're going to get this knocked down,' he said of Capone's home, which currently has standing water underneath it. 'The house is a piece of crap,' Glaser added. 'It's a disgrace to Miami Beach.' Glaser purchased the home with his business partner, Nelson Gonzalez, who is a senior vice president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

And reportedly, when they got the deed to the place, the new owners were heard to exclaim..."Say hello to my little friend...the wrecking ball!"

I dunno...I'm already worried about a leaky roof. Now I gotta worry about a leaking floor?

Inside the luxury nuclear bunker stretching 15 floors below ground in Kansas

Enchanting woodland 'Bearbnb' inspired by the Winnie the Pooh house now available on

Fancy spending the night in a 'Bearbnb' inspired by the Winnie the Pooh house? The English abode is available on Airbnb and was designed by Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator Kim Raymond, who has been drawing the beloved bear for over 30 years. The charming den has tree trunks framing the doorway and, inside, the shelves are piled high with 'hunny' pots. A few house rules apply - number one, strictly no heffalumps are allowed inside.

Looks like when George C. Scott said, "Mr. President, we must not allow a mine shaft gap!", someone took it very very seriously here.

Of course there will be certain sacrifices such as men having to abandon monogamous relationships.

Yep, Bogie! Every time I hear that line from Kubrick's film AND the one about there then being ten women down in those mine shafts for every one man, I always think of the opening lyrics in that Jan & Dean song 'Surf City' about there being "two girls for every boy", and THEN think about how even BETTER the demographics would skew in a post-nuclear holocaust world for us men than apparently how it was in Huntington Beach California circa the 1960s!  ;)

(...in admittedly a purely unenlightened sexist manner, of course!)  LOL

  Just some free-thinking here, Dargo: I thought of the surf locals at San Onofre, leaving the TCMessage Boards' resident humorist to riff off of if of the mind...

 Well, it was either that or some Hawthorne High/Mattel Toys drop for us.

 Careful, Dargo: I think you're nearing the red on the sexism dosimeter!

Nice talk from a so-called professional. I've had to restore & conserve several old homes & building structures. Really, there isn't anything you can't fix or rebuild. If I were hired as consultant, I would have advised raising the house (not razing) and rebuilding the foundation to preserve it for the future. If not too ornate or specialized, it's easier & more cost effective to simply replicate the building structure.

This is just lazy thinking & why most houses built today have all the ambiance of a hotel room: white/beige walls, square rooms & non descriptive furnishings. Oh, and so you don't forget where you are or what you're supposed to do - posted instructions:

Ooohhhh!!!  I hate todays houses.  Especially subdivisions, (no offense to anyone who lives in one.  This is just my opinion).  They are just so boring!  My grandparents house was beautiful.  Very victorian-esque.  (Sp?)  When they died, my aunt sold it to a couple who claimed they were going to keep it in the same condition.  Of course, they immediately modernized everything.  Carpet ripped out, beige walls, the dining room is now where the living room was, etc.  It's so tacky now.  *cries*
