Halloween and Eastern State Penitentiary: Terror Behind the Walls

It’s that time of year again. Eastern State Penitentiary (which I’ve blogged about below) is holding its annual Halloween festivities.

Known as “Terror Behind the Walls” this is one of Philadelphia’s hottest tickets for the month of October (fright nights run throughout the whole month!).

For more information, go to the Penitentiary website here.

(The Foucault connection: he discusses the penitentiary in Discipline & Punish.)
