Woodbridge NJ

When the prison was built, it was next to a swamp, hardly anyone knew Woodbridge, & Rahway delivered the mail. My dad worked across the street in the 50's & 60's & a couple of times prison trustees gave me rides on the tractor they used to work the corn & hay fields of the prison farm. The farm & castle entry portal are gone, the place encased in razor wire, but "The Dome" is an unmistakable landmark.

Labels: , ,

The exterior was cleaned and repainted, and the leaks in the dome repaired about 3-4 years ago.
Rahwayans are generally quite fond of the prison, as long as it's made clear the prison is not in Rahway.
