Rikers Island explained

It occurs to me that many of you, dear readers, are not from around these parts and that the term Rikers Island may not be meaningful.  Rikers Island is the largest New York City jail.  Housed on an actual island in the East River, somewhere between Manhattan and Queens.  When visiting New York you should make a point of not being taken there by the police.
