Newbie to Sing Sing
 
Hello everyone,

So my hubby will be moving to Sing Sing. I am not happy about this since I love where he is now and I am used to everything. I have been reading things and have seen that it is hard to find and that I will need to park like 10 mins away and walk to the facility. Also the package info some say it is a TV facility some say it is not. Does anyone have the 2014 visiting calendar yet, just so I get an idea since I am in Florida I will need to plan my trips way better :( which I am not happy about, I am used to going to visit three days in a row, Fri, Sat and Sunday. Please anyone that knows about Sing Sing and also who goes to visit alot please give me more info :) maybe even have a new pal to go with my first time so I am not alone and I know what to do.

Thanks

the parking situation is not great there. Best to park where the train comes in and take a short cab ride ($5-7 ).

call and ask on the packages/TV thing. As of Dec. 2012--it was not yet a TV facility--but it seems it was being converted--so it may be one by now.

it is not a TV facility. It was being converted at one point but i think work has stopped. If you drive up the hill behind the facility, there is parking but i don't know if it is only for staff. you can call and find out for sure i guess. Cabs from the train station run $5 if you take it on your own and $3 if you share it withother visitors coming off the trains (on the weekends). I haven't gotten the 2014 schedule yet but if i do, i will scan and post it here. I usually cab it up (especially carrying packages) and then during good weather, walk back down to the station.

Thank you :) I normally rent a car so I will have to call to find out about parking. So you go there now?

yes, i currently visit sing sing
 
it's easier for me to get to with the train station right down the hill from the prison. Once he is eligible to move to a medium facility, i don't know what i'm going to do again. Hopefully find bus service that goes wherever he is next. :(

They will become a TV facility sometime next month, my husband just moved there and told me... FYI

Momma Ann 03-24-2014 02:58 AM

Just be aware they have been spinning that TV thing for a while.

I was just told from a friend that inmates have been given 60 days to get their packages from home because of them getting the TV's. Anyone know if they can receive lunch meat, if so does it matter what kind. I know it can't be from the deli, but some places only let in the ones in the container that are also sealed inside, others don't let in the containers.

Momma Ann 04-02-2014 09:23 AM

no glued seals are allowed any whre in DOCS-so I assume that is the same for Sing Sing. Find the kind in the plastic bags.

JASNBENG 04-14-2014 08:08 PM

I just sent my husband some summer beef sausage and pepperoni sticks and tuna pouches... never sent lunch meat before and wouldn't recommend it.
