History in Buena Park
Apartments in Buena Park are known for their proximity to the lakefront and quiet side streets. Still, one notorious Chicago resident was an on-and-off apartment dweller in this sleepy North Side neighborhood. John Dillinger, prolific bank robber and Public Enemy No. 1, used a room on the third floor of a Buena Park apartment building at 4310 N Clarendon Ave as one of his hideouts.
