J Goes Places #001: Eastern State Penitentiary. Philadelphia, PA. 5/27/17

A brief introduction from easternstate.org:

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. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including “Slick Willie” Sutton and “Scarface” Al Capone.

Al Capone’s cell. 1929-1930.
