EASTERN STATE PENITENTIARY
Eastern State Penitentiary is an old prison in Philadelphia. While it is no longer an active prison, it has been preserved "in a state of decay". Famous criminals such as Al Capone were held in Eastern State. The prison is laid out in a radial design and was built at a time when the focus was on rehabilitation of criminals.
