The Green Lantern was St. Paul's premier criminal hangout -- a saloon for safecrackers and bank robbers which Alvin "Creepy" Karpis called "my personal headquarters." The Lantern was turned over to Dillinger gang members Tommy Gannon and Pat Reilly in 1933, closed in 1934, and became a photography studio and beauty shop in the 1950s before being razed.[1]
