22nd St & Fairmount Ave.

This 19th-century landmark was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks. Former inmates include bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone. Tour vaulted cellblocks, central rotunda and death row.
