Information about Sing Sing

Sing Sing Correctional Facility is a maximum security prison in Ossining, New York. Sing Sing “reaches back almost to the beginning of the state prison system in New York.” It is located in Westchester County approximately 30 miles north of New York City on the edge of the Hudson River. The name comes from the original name of the village of Ossining, though the penitentiary was first called "Mount Pleasant" when it opened in 1828.

Today Sing Sing houses more than 1,700 prisoners. There are plans to convert the original 1825 cell block, which still stands, into a museum.
