History in River North
The old North Side Gang’s headquarters were above Schofield’s, Dean O'Banion's flower shop at 738 N State St, across from Holy Name Cathedral, a landmark that’s visible from many River North apartments today. After O'Banion suckered John Torrio into buying his half-interest in a brewery for $500,000 shortly before the feds raided it, Torrio’s South Side Gang exacted revenge.
