Explored the Eastern State Penitentiary while I was in Philly on Easter with the other non-religious folk who had no Easter ham awaiting them back home!
From the website:
Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals. It was built in 1829 and abandoned in 1971.
