Alcatraz was once an island prison that held hundreds of prisoners, but now it is an abandon island prison. It is in California right by San Francisco. Prisoners always tried to escape but they never could because the island is surrounded by an eel infested bay. Many prisoners died but there were some that were able to escape the eel infested bay.
But now the island is the spot for tourists and anybody who take boats and swim across the bay that is now not an eel infested bay anymore based on the temperature of the water which is -0. There are three books based on the super bad man named AL Capone, there called AL Capone does my shirts, AL Capone does my shoes and AL Capone does my homework. The prisoners were actually like slaves sort of but they really weren’t, anyway they had to do people's clothes, shoes and homework and all different kinds of stuff.
Family’s lived there when it wasn’t abandon and they only lived there because the men only could work on the island Alcatraz because the job of being a guard takes a man. It must have been weird living right where prisoners were living. Sometimes prisoners weren’t even bad they just got framed and there was nothing for them to do about it, so going to an island prison here they come.
