: York Street Jail

: Springfield, MA

Current Status
: Demolished

Background: This is an abandoned "Big House" style prison built in 1886 and abandoned as of 1992. Getting in is hard and so is getting out.  Have to watch out for the crack addicted hobos too and the part of the building that is still active.
