The Eastern State Penitentiary, also known as ESP, is a former American prison in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Notorious criminals such as bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone were held inside its innovative wagon wheel design. At its completion, the building was the largest and most expensive public structure ever erected, and quickly became a model for more than 300 prisons worldwide.
