It is. I was taken there on a class trip to "shake us up" a bit. We were brats back then. What a hell hole.

It's a charming little place with nice views.

What kind of position are you going to have? Any contact with the inmates?

Why are you applying there?

It is to my understanding that they were closing that prison down by moving inmates to other prisons. Is there another option for you to pick another place?

Presumably this is why the OP said position is "short term".

Time: The Kalief Browder Story

Highly recommended documentary dealing with Rikers.
I hear they are shutting down the jail too.
