Here’s a worthy use for our prisons: Charles street jail

Liberty Hotel - Boston, Massachusetts, United States. 

Converting from the home of some of Boston’s most notorious criminals, the 1851 Charles Street Jail, into a luxurious four-star hotel needs to be applauded both for its’ audacity and ultimately its’ success. 

The jail’s central atrium was beautifully preserved and forms the reception and hub of life in the hotel. It features the historic catwalks, while jail cells have been preserved in the hotel restaurant and wrought-iron bars remain on the windows.

Turned into a luxurious hotel in 2007, its waterfront location was to prevent the possible escape of prisoners, but nowadays it serves for stunning views of Boston and the water. 

Rack rates start at about $286 for a double.” 

Jared Morgan

Let’s get the redeemable and innocent out of our prisons, keeping enough open for the psychotic, demon possessed, and mean. Then let’s take the rest of those buildings and turn them into hotels, office buildings, schools—remodeled. Some children already think they are in jail—and maybe sell a few as business parks—remodeled. Same comment as schools. No state will ever have to close schools, fire teachers, or close needed programs because of budget concerns again. With fewer federal prisons, taxes will go down since we no longer have to support crime. The ex-inmates who have new starts will work and pay taxes. Some of them will begin legitimate businesses and create jobs.
