Prison ‘Blokhuis’
Leeuwarden, Friesland, The Netherlands

Prison 'Blokhuis’ was opened February 22 1499 Through the years a lot has changed what prison it was. November 12, 1754 the building burned almost completely, then the building stronger and safer rebuilt. Since 2008 the prison was a cultural center for businesses. Since then, the prison also be called Blokhuispoort.

I am such a dork.  I am watching an episode of Elementary and they go out to the prison Sing-Sing to interview an inmate.  They flash a shot of the gate with the sign.  The sign and the gate is wrong. That is not Sing-Sing. Then they go in and interview the inmate.  He is wearing the wrong uniform.
