Rikers Island is New York City’s main jail complex and the largest penal colony in the world. There are five organic gardens run by the Horticultural Society of New York, where detainees and prisoners tend flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Riots, lockdowns, beatings, and solitary confinement occur in the nearby buildings.
