    My girlfriend and I took 2 tours of the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. We captured some really amazing pics, so I thought I'd post em'. Enjoy!

    Cool if im not mistaken Ghost Hunters went there and caught a ghost on film. Shadow like figure who seems to zip around in 1 hall of the place. Fact or Fiction who knows? They also dont like Orbs or dust particles caught during the flash of the camera and I notice you have some.:)

    I wouldn't go into a closed down penitentiary to save my life. Call it superstition, but people can sense evil, and prisons just reek it.

    Looks like a set for a horror film.

    I've been there a couple times, it's gotten kind of bad over the past couple of years though

    So is that a barber's chair or the electric chair? :confused: :eek:

    Are you allowed to just tour disused prisons like that? Seems like a bizarre tourist attraction.

    I believe they do have scheduled tours.

    Awesome pictures though, a bit disturbing however.:eek:

    Do you know the last time it was still used?

    <edit> After a quick trip to their website, I see it was closed in 1970. </edit>

    LOL! It's a barber's chair.

    There's alot of areas of the prison they won't let you tour, because their not up to code.

    Here's the clip of what Ghost Hunters captured at Eastern State:
