Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through “confinement in solitude with labor,” Eastern State Penitentiary has housed such notorious criminals such as bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone.When the building was erected it was the largest and most expensive public structure ever constructed, and quickly became a model for more than 300 prisons worldwide. Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.www.EasternState.org/
