Located at 11260 Route 9 W in Coxsackie, NY, Coxsackie CF carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history.

Coxsackie CF, a maximum-security state prison located in Greene County, New York, accommodates approximately 900 male inmates under the purview of the New York State Department of Corrections. The facility offers a range of services aimed at inmate rehabilitation, including alcohol and substance abuse treatment programs, as well as adult basic education and GED classes.

Inmates at Coxsackie Correctional have access to vocational training in various fields such as computers, building and custodial maintenance, culinary arts, electrical work, masonry, plumbing and heating, welding, printing, and painting. Additionally, the facility participates in Correctional Industries, operating a garment shop that employs select inmates.

Established in 1935 as the New York State Vocational Institution, Coxsackie CF was designed by architect Alfred Hopkins. Notably, the design eschewed traditional prison aesthetics, featuring no surrounding walls or fences, and reflected progressive principles focused on aesthetics and a sense of place.

Initially receiving older inmates from the New York House of Refuge, which was closing after serving as a juvenile reformatory since 1825, Coxsackie continued its reformatory function by providing inmates with academic and vocational education programs. Industrial training in mechanics, machine shop, printing, and agriculture further enriched the rehabilitative offerings. Initially, inmates were directly committed from the courts, but since 1945, the facility has primarily received its inmates from the Elmira Reception Center.
