Boerum Hill

The prison has to be a good neighbor

Long-time residents of Boerum Hill have always known that the House of Detention would re-open one day, and now that day is imminent. To be sure, it will be a challenge to integrate our returning neighbor into a more densely residential environment. Comment.

The House of Dention is crucial to our work

The Brooklyn House of Detention, capacity 759 inmates, was built in 1957. Located in downtown Brooklyn, on Atlantic Avenue, the 11-story facility housed inmates steadily for nearly half a century before the city closed the building temporarily in 2003. This facility wasn’t the borough’s first city jail; there has been a city jail in Brooklyn since 1686, but performs crucial services that are critical to law enforcement and criminal justice.
