Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania once held the infamous gangster Al Capone. While I wouldn’t want to spend a day in jail, Al Capone’s cell looks like it was pretty cozy. At least I could catch up on some reading.
Right in the heart of Philadelphia, Eastern State Penitentiary was an active prison from 1829-1971. Now it is a museum, and a really interesting place to visit.
Alcatraz. Evil Island. The Rock. Garrison. Prison. Protest site. Park. I have always been fascinated by Alcatraz and its industrial beauty. It’s not a pretty place and yet somehow it is.
