Downstate is reception. Usually for the first 2 weeks it is testing. Walking in pairs all over the place. Usually in 4 weeks they move to a facility to suit their classification needs. It is no more dangerous than any other jail. Gangs drugs whatever exists everywhere.
They have opportunity on their down time for library, rec, religion. But it is regimented in the beginning because this is the classification process, so everyone is an unknown. Getting to the “home” jail will give opportunity for programs, school, jobs. Voluntary self hel meetings.

Downstate is a maximum security prison when they are in reception they don't come out much they might see each other in the yard is your loved one a part of the gang if so maybe he can ask to be in solitary confinement so he won't see them or they could be on the same block as them

There are gangs everywhere. 5 is nothing. They will be at every jail. They each have individual history and that will determine where they are sent.
