The Correctional Association visited Hudson Correctional Facility on November 14th and 15th, 2007. Hudson is a medium security prison located in Hudson, New York. It was built in 1887 as a reformatory for young women and retains its historical architecture. The prison also contains a minimum security annex area, separate from the main complex of buildings, which housed 56 inmates in the Work Release program and 41 inmates in the Industrial Training program. At the time of our visit, there were 415 inmates residing in the main complex’s “cottages,” where inmates either share dorm rooms of a few to eight men or occupy single rooms. Cottages have shared communal spaces such as television rooms and laundry facilities, and inmates have keys to their rooms. The prison offers a variety of treatment, vocational and educational programs in its general confinement area.
