I’ve recently come home from a trip to the Washington DC/Philadelphia area, and one of our stops was the Eastern State Pen. I didn’t really know much about the place other than the conditions were brutal and that it was featured on one of my guilty pleasures, Ghost Adventures. Naturally, when I caught wind the place was in Philly, I had to go.
This place is the stuff of nightmares, from the peeling paint to the abandoned items you can see through cracks in the cell doors. When you walk through these massive halls, you can feel a shift in energy. Eastern State definitely has a heaviness to it. It’s a definite destination for the horror enthusiast in us all.
I present to you, Eastern State.
