What people are saying:

The triangular building is a prison building in the city center. The bottom nine floors are the executive office, the tenth floor is the various mechanical rooms, and the rest are prisons. The windows are only five feet wide. The prisons are housed by federal prisoners of all security levels. Women are held on the 12th floor, with two persons per room, bunk beds, toilets, sinks and small tables. Men are more likely than women. Men and women will not meet. A small piece of sky on the roof is where prisoners are flying. If you look down at Willis Tower , you may just see prisoners flying on the top floor. It is said that two prisoners, oiled and slid out of narrow windows, were caught a year and a half later, and the other one was never caught.
