Come Tour the Brooklyn House of Detention

Brooklyn House of D: MK Metz
Here's your opportunity to tour Brooklyn's House of Detention -- the Big House of D.

The New York City Department of Correction invites the community to attend an open house at the Brooklyn Detention Complex on Saturday, February 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and it’s absolutely free. This will be an opportunity to meet Warden Walter Nin, ask questions and tour the Boerum Hill facility.

The open house in being held in advance of the phased re-opening of the House of Detention. Approximately 100 inmates per week will be transferred to the facility beginning in February.

See the Cobble Hill Blog for information on registering for the tour.
