New York City Jail Facilities

Eric M. Taylor Center


Built in 1964 and expanded in 1973, EMTC houses adolescent and adult male inmates sentenced to terms of one year or less. Most of its housing is dormitory style. Able-bodied sentenced inmates are required to work and provide Rikers Island with its grounds crews, facility maintenance and industrial labor force. The facility, previously designated the Correctional Institution for Men, was renamed on July 14, 2000, in honor of retired Chief of Department Eric M. Taylor.
