Talbot Hall is a state prison reentry treatment center for 536 adult males preparing to reenter the community as contributing citizens under the supervision of the New Jersey Department of Corrections located next to the Hudson County Correctional Facility. The Hall is a two-story brick building that dates back to the early 1900s when it served as the corporate headquarters for a subsidiary of U.S. Steel. After years of neglect and abandonment, its potential was recognized, and it was transformed into a residential reentry center.
