The Bayview Correctional Facility in New York, New York is a medium-security women's correctional facility located at the corner of 20th Street and 11th Avenue in Manhattan, directly across the street from the Chelsea Piers sports complex.

Interesting Facts: It's very unusual to find a state penitentiary in the middle of a major city. Bayview consists only of one large building and does not have grounds and a fenced perimeter. Covering the entire south wall of Bayview is the "Venus", a mural painted by New York artist Knox Martin in 1970 which is shown on this page.

The Department’s “Call-Home” program allows inmates to make phone calls as a way to maintain contact with family and friends. The inmate may only call you collect. This means you will have to pay for the call.

Visitation by family and friends is encouraged and can be a positive influence during an inmate’s time in prison, as well as after the inmate’s release. Research has shown that an inmate who receives regular visitation adjusts much better once he or she is released from prison.
