Default What is MCC New York like?

What exactly is an "administrative security" facility? What is daily life in this facility? Thanks.

The number of "supermax" (ADX or ADMAX, Administrative Maximum Facility) prisons has recently doubled now that Thomson was added to Florence. Here is the A&O inmate rules handbook for Florence ADMAX. https://www.bop.gov/locations/instit...aohandbook.pdf

The bop also runs a number of different "punishment prisons", Special Management Unit (SMU) and communications restricted units are two, but the most frequent is a long stay in each prison's secure housing unit (SHU).

As for MCC New York, it has received much deserved negative publicity after Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide there, Here's an August 2019 ATLANTIC article by Jeanne Theoharis: "I Tried to Tell the World About Epstein’s Jail. No One Wanted to Listen. The Metropolitan Correctional Center has become notorious for decades of inhumane treatment".
