The 3rd 1930s Rikers virtual tour close-up shows most of the major structures constituting the penitentiary complex, including the hospital (far left), lack exterior amenities such as entrance walks, driveways and roads as well as lawns, trees, and scrubs. The scene seems very much still a construction site with extensive work remaining to be completed before the facilities can become operational.
