Growing up here from 1983 to 1997 I remember lloking at this casino and wondering why it was closed. It's great brick wall provided my backyard with privacy. I lived on Dodworth street. It was fun telling scary stories about it with my many siblings from witches and monsters to ghosts.

The three Gach brothers, Arthur, Max, and Morty, grew up right across the street, at 1154 Dekalb Ave., in the 1920s.
The name was later changed to Gache. Mac (Max) Gache went on to publish the Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia, Unicorn Mystery Books, The World's Greatestest Music, and much more.
