Today we toured the Eastern State Penitentiary, the first prison in the United States. The place is literally in ruins. Some places aren’t even safe enough to walk through because if you sneeze, you’ll fall through the floorboards and the plaster walls will implode.
However, we couldn’t help but notice the amazing architecture and the unexpected beauty because of and in spite of the decay.
The craziest part of the tour? A peek into Al Capone’s cell, exactly as it was during his stay.
Lemme hear you say, “What the?”
