Sing Sing Historic Prison, Ossining, New York
The phrase “sent up the river” refers to the journey of convicted criminals from New York City to Sing Sing, located 40 miles north
of New York City on the Hudson River. Guerin led a team that did marketing studies, economic impact reports, interpretive research, landscape design,
archaeological assessment, and exhibition environment design for a very unusual situation in that Sing Sing remains an operating penitentiary.
The centerpiece artifact – that was to have done partial duty as a screen for interpretive projections – was the remarkable 1825 prison structure,
now just a shell. With Li-Saltzman Architects. Scott Guerin was
project principal, and Jane Dodds interpretive developer and master plan writer.
