A silent, crumbling cellblock of the Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, PA, USA. This prison, with a wagon wheel floor plan, was once one of the most expensive prisons in the world and now stands in ruins. It was opened in 1829 and abandoned in 1971.

    feels quite spooky, you can imagine what secrets it holds, l wonder how many prisoners went through there

  • It was a bit creepy – some cells were very dark!
