CEQR Number 18DOC001Y
Project Name Borough Based Jail System
Project Description The City of New York’s success in dramatically reducing crime and lowering the number of people in jail, coupled with the grassroots support for closing Rikers Island Correctional Facility (Rikers Island), has allowed for the City, through the New York City Department of Correction (DOC), to propose implementing a borough-based jail system as part of the City’s continued commitment to create a modern, humane and safe justice system and close the jails on Rikers Island. This proposed project would establish four new detention facilities located in the Bronx (745 East 141st Street), Brooklyn (275 Atlantic Avenue), Manhattan (124-125 White Street), and Queens (126-02 82nd Avenue). Each of the proposed facilities would provide approximately 1,437 beds to house people in detention. In total, the proposed project would provide approximately 5,748 beds to accommodate an average daily population of 5,000 people in a system of four borough-based jails. The proposed project would ensure that each borough facility has ample support space for quality educational programming, recreation, therapeutic services, publicly accessible community space, and staff parking.
