New York Federal Prisons | Federal Prisons in New York

By Spodek Law Group | June 23, 2023
(Last Updated On: July 28, 2023)

Alright, friend, let’s chat about what we’ve got going on in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of – that’s right, New York. This state boasts four independent federal prisons and one prison camp, overseen by our friendly neighborhood Northeast Regional Office. Let’s break it down: 3,194 inmates call these places home.

New York Federal Prisons by Security Level

First, let’s talk medium-security federal prisons. Two facilities fit the bill:

1. FCI Otisville (Otisville, NY) – yeah, that’s right, O-Town’s got a place on the list.
2. FCI Ray Brook(Ray Brook, NY) – nestled between placid lakes.

Then we have our minimum-security federal prison:

1. FCI Otisville Camp (Otisville, NY) – who knew camping could be so…restricting?

And, last but certainly not least, administrative-security federal prisons:

1. MDC Brooklyn (Brooklyn, NY) – brewin’ up some baddies.
2. MCC New York (New York, NY) – taking a bite out of the Big Apple.

All About Those Federal Prisons in New York

MDC Brooklyn, also known as Metropolitan Detention Center Brooklyn, is slap-bang in Brooklyn, New York. They house 1,541 strong men and women.

MCC New York, a.k.a. Metropolitan Correctional Center New York, is perched right in the heart of the city and makes a home for 683 inmates.

FCI Otisville provides an upstate respite for 511 inmates, taking on a more medium-security approach.

Minor troublemakers might find themselves at FCI Otisville Camp, the minimum-security level prison also in Otisville, accommodating 65 inmates needing a teepee for the night!

Rounding out our list, the FCI Ray Brook stands tall in Ray Brook, New York housing 561 of what I like to call our ‘state guests’.

The Story of New York State Federal Prisons

Over 3,000 inmates call the four New York state federal prisons home at any given time. Understanding these facilities and their unique attributes can help you (or a loved one) navigate the complex reality of being guests of Uncle Sam’s hospitality suite.

Brooklyn MDC: Making a home for over 1,500 men and women of all security levels, Brooklyn MDC serves outpatients with chronic conditions under quarterly clinicians’ evaluations. It’s got a bit of a rep for its facility and inmate relations issues, but hey, no place is perfect, right?

New York MCC: This high-rise in the heart of Manhattan holds nearly twice as many inmates as it was designed for – but don’t we all in NYC?

Otisville FCI: This facility offers a bit of green for our state guests, housing just around 800 between its medium-security prison and satellite camp. Feels a bit like summer camp, with barracks, lockers, laundry facilities, microwaves, and ice machines – best believe it even has its resident rabbi and kosher meals for the requesting!

Ray Brook FCI: In its heyday, this was once the housing for athletes at the 1980 Winter Olympics. Now, it holds about 800 inmates in good health who may need a doc once in a while. Nothing a clean whistle and wrap around the wrist can’t handle!

In the vast world of the internet, you can even find detailed Wikipedia pages for each New York federal prison, though you might want a more comprehensive and regularly updated source (hint, hint- looking at you, buddy).

Pages for each facility:

Okaaay, are you still with me or did I lose you at Brooklyn? Seems like a lot to wrap your head around, right? Don’t worry. At the end of the day, we’ve got your back, always counting on Spodek Law Group to break it down for you, one NY federal prison at a time. Remember, knowledge is power, and having the ins and outs at your fingertips gives you that upper hand. Sleep easy, my friend, knowing you’ve got the top attorneys in your corner.
