New York City Jail Facilities

West Facility


Opened in the fall of 1991, it was designed to be an 940-bed facility constructed of Sprung Structures- rigid aluminum framed structures covered by a heavy-duty plastic fabric. Part of the West Facility was converted into the Department’s Contagious Disease Unit (CDU) center in which 140 specially air-controlled housing units are reserved for male and female inmates with contagious diseases such as tuberculosis. With the exception of the CDU, West Facility is operationally off-line and in reserve status at present.
