About Alcatraz Island
The memorable and famous Alcatraz prison, situated on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, is one of America's most scandalous penitentiaries. It worked for very nearly thirty years, shutting in 1963 and re-opening as a vacation spot in 1973. Some of America's most notable crooks were prisoners here, including Al Capone and the "Birdman," who might later frame the reason for the anecdotal film The Birdman of Alcatraz.
Visitors can take a ship over to the island and visit the site while tuning in to an uncommon sound account that offers a look into life in the jail, as opposed to only an authentic rundown of the certainties. The portrayal is even voiced by previous prisoners and gatekeepers of Alcatraz.
