04/28/07: Eastern State Penitentiary
Here are photos from a recent trip to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. Decommissioned in the 70s, the site is being maintained by the city and is available for tours and special events. In addition to its obligatory decay and creepiness, the prison has many other points of interest including: Al Capone did time there; artist installations have been incorporated into the buildings' remains; this prison was used as the model for the video game "The Suffering".
