Wallkill Correctional Facility
Wallkill, New York 12589-0286
The prison was built in the 1930s, designed by Eleanor Roosevelt and a consulting architect. It was once only used to house "Good Behavior/White Collar" inmates. Now, due to changing times, the inmate population has changed and first-time offenders now begin and end their sentences are Wallkill C.F. The prison originally was called the "Prison without a Wall," but in the 21st century a wall of chain-link fencing and razor wire was constructed around the facility. It is a free-movement facility that has a petting zoo on the weekends.
