Conditions in NY jails

Just heard from my daughter in custody
Just got off the phone with my daughter who is being held in the detention center in NY. She confirmed all the horror stories we've been hearing about the conditions there, big pens full of people, chemicals and noxious fumes, over 24 hours to get her first phone call and still hasn't even been told what she's being charged with. She's supposed to be arraigned tonight and hope to at least get some information.
