As we continue the search for the elusive closed, film-friendly prison, Emily and I reach out of Southern California and into the Central Valley…
On a trip South from the Bay Area, Emily and I stop to tour the Fresno Tenth Street Juvenile Facility. Closed about five years ago, [for inhumane treatment violations!] it doubled well as a prison. Awesomely scary.
But five years of abandonment and flocks of dedicated pigeons will leave a building in pretty gnarly shape, so we were very glad to be wearing closed-toed shoes!
Verdict: Some interesting layouts. Scary first floor and yards. Far away.
