Sandy-damaged prison to be sold in NYC hotspot

Posted: Updated:
By The Associated Press - A former women's prison in Manhattan that few New Yorkers knew about remains closed a year after Superstorm Sandy caused $600,000 in damage.

After the storm, state officials decided to close Bayview Correctional Facility, and they're still trying to figure out what to do with it.

But Bayview's location in the heart of the city's trendy Chelsea neighborhood suggests it has potential.

The eight-story building is surrounded by upscale restaurants, luxury condos and high-end shops. It's also within steps of the popular Highline elevated park.

The 153 women inmates housed at Bayview were evacuated to other facilities before the storm hit. They never returned.
