According to Huffington Post, "The New York City Council is preparing to consider a trio of bills that would set the stage to convert the infamously violent jail complex on Rikers Island into a solar farm and wastewater treatment facility." Queens Councilman Costa Constantinides, who authored the bills, told the press, “We know all the atrocities that have happened on Rikers Island for close to 100 years. It’s important that we start planning for this renewable future now and not wait until the jails are closed.”
