New York MCC Warden

The correctional center is housed in a 12-story high-rise building located at 150 Park Row in the Civic Center neighborhood. As of 1¬†February¬†2017[update], it had 796 inmates, both male and female, which is far more than its design capacity of 449. The facility has one female wing; seven General Population male wings, six of which feature cells and one is a dorm; one Special Housing Unit (SHU); and one “supermax” unit. Each unit takes up two stories. All General Population units feature a gym (no weights), a kitchen (microwaves, hot water, ice), and five TV sets (one in the gym and four on the floor). Offices, classes, and computers are located on the unit’s second floor. The jail is chronically understaffed.
