Shanong-

You should post your question in another thread- the MCSP family visit question thread Here is the link:

http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=520971

You might get some more responses as this thread is only for posts related to the visiting hotline updates.

I can tell you though that family visits are not based on the yard- i.e. a SNY yard as you reference. They are based on the inmates custody level, charges, sentence, etc, etc. Here is a thread that has the title 15 rules and who is eligible and who is not.

Hello everyone,
