philly: eastern state penitentiary

Touring creepy places is a hobby of mine, so I jumped at the chance to visit Eastern State Penitentiary during our recent trip to Philly. A working prison up until the early 1970's, Eastern State was the first jail to adopt the practice of keeping prisoners in separate confinement (which is now the norm). Educational and interesting, Eastern State is one of my favorite spots in Philly so far.
