Rikers Island Has A Yelp Page And The Reviews Are Pretty Much As You’d Expect

I was watching “The Night Of” the other night and, with part of the show being set at Rikers Island (New York’s main correctional facility), I found myself googling it for a bit more info. While this might seem like I just like to be really informed about content I’m consuming, it’s more a serious case of ADD and separation anxiety from my phone that keeps me from simply sitting still for an hour to enjoy a TV show in its entirety. But I digress. I ended up stumbling upon a Rikers Island Yelp page and reading through the reviews. Most of them were, understandably quite entertaining…

I really enjoyed that part about the kid with the earring. I bet that little punk totally deserved it. Moving on…the more popular review option was to give it a low rating with hilarious reasons explaining why:
