Bridewell Prison was a prison in New York.

HistoryEdit

Bridewell Prison was built in 1773 when New Gaol was becoming so large that a new prison was needed. The building was finished in 1775, but rather than being used for prisoners, the British took over and used it to contain American prisoners of war. It held the Assassin Connor, the Templar Thomas Hickey, and Mason Locke Weems for a brief period of time.

After the Revolutionary War ended and the British were removed from town, the prison went back to its intended purpose of holding local criminals. The building was eventually torn down in 1838 and the parts were re-used for a new prison nicknamed "The Tombs."[1]
