Philadelphia, P.A. – Photos of Eastern State Penitentiary – America’s Most Historic and Haunted Prison

img_1303-2Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone. I took a bunch of photos with my Canon 80D and Sony a6000. I took 5 lenses with me, thats all that could fit in my small camera bag. This was place spooky and cold. I got some good shots, but I would’ve loved to take video. They didn’t want anybody taking videos at all, that was a bummer. We spent about 3 hours there. There is an audio self guided tour you can take for $14. The story of the prison even crazier than the photos. If you want something to do any day during the week come check out Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. They are open from 10am – 5pm everyday. I really enjoyed my time here.
