We call that stop "Graterworld". It's a whole different culture in there. I've been there three times and the smell of Kite, oranges and cleaning supplies has never changed. Makes my stomach knot up just thinking about it. It's WIDE wide open, I've seen hacks buying stuff from inmates' stores. It's not THE toughest spot, but it's absolutely top 5. If you have people in there, all I can say is good luck. Tell 'em to stick to their own, it's one of those joints.

no love

my bd just got sent to graterford how long does he stay on black out
shea wrote on Sunday, November 16, 2014

    There is no " Black Out" he gotta set up his phone,put in a visit list etc.. graterford is an intake facility for the eastern region.. It can end up being your home jail too. But you go thru Camp Hill First for classification...

Hey I just got out from doing three years here and though I've witnessed violence it is what you make it. It is still group showering and each block holds up too 600 people. I did my time on D block with lifers and those doing big numbers. It's a sad situation in there and despite many preconceived beliefs there are some good men in there. I pray for all those brothers and their families.

Idris wrote on Sunday, February 02, 2014

    Living conditions? Well D Block is an older block so it has the older look, there's some mice and a few big ass roaches you see once awhile in the chow hall but for the most part if you got a TV and get a daily routine like programs or weightlifting or trade you can cope better because even though I only did three every once in awhile I used to get those feelings of hopelessness..but with reading and prayer I kept my mind sharp enough to focus on the goal of getting out..they have a new side I was never on so it's probably more up to date but it's like a little city inside of those walls..I know from experience it's possible to survive as long as you refrain from the BS

My sister and I will also be attending the dinner as well. I was told that you can get dressed. of course nothing ridiculous or skin hanging out. Just a nice dress or so. I am going to call today to confirm. Don't be nervous. it's alot of us attending. This is an opportunity for him to feel somewhat normal....Enjoy yourself..:)
