Is Rikers Island jail closed?
Rikers Island jail facility will be closed, mayor says. As of 2016, Rikers' population was its lowest to date, with just over 10,000 inmates being held at the 85-year-old jail complex where individuals are held on charges as they wait for a trial. Still, despite record-low population, violence continued to climb.
