Default The Box @ Rikers

So my boo has landed himself in the box at Rikers. I've gone to visit him several times in the past and it's all been on the dance floor. After not having heard from him in a week he calls me yesterday telling me he's in the box and that he was just given back his pin # - do they take it from them? Anyway, I'm confused -- I want to go see him but I'm not sure how different it is from the regular visits. Like, I've visited him once a loooong time ago (he's been @ Rikers for a minute) and it was in a cage but I don't remember anything (the weeds) so if anyone can kindly help me out I would greatly appreciate it. I'm assuming a good time to go is during the week since I've always noticed girls complaining about having to wait extra long for a box... I just want to be in the know.

Thanx!

Default Visiting in the Box

Visiting in the box at OBCC is not as bad as they make it out to be. My man is in the box and it's not the first time. The only BAD part about them being in the box for us is they only get 1 6 minute call now! My man has to have glass visits because of the amount of times he has been in the box while he has been on the island. If you have a cage visit it depends ont he day and the time you go. I usually go at least 2 of the 3 visits a week. If you go early on the visit day your wait is minimal and the officers are decent. You aren't on the dance floor - you are back behind the cage door. The good thing is after you have gone through your final search, you walk through the door - you don't have to put your card in the slot to wait to be called. You go back on the to the visit floor to your left and give the officer your card through the door. They will let you know if he's down or not and usually the wait is minimal. Last Sunday I waited A LONG time because they were having a Ramadan festival and there were no escorts, but usually 9 times out of 10 he is waiting for me. Be pleasant to the officers and they don't give you a hard time and will usually be accomaodating on the visit! Good luck and let me know if you need anymore info!!

Hi - I know that when they move them around they DO have to get a new pin #. My man got moved around about 4 times and each time he had to wait for a pin but it didnt take long, max was a day. It could be longer for your boo because hes in the box. As far as visits, I have no idea but I would just call Rikers and ask them if they could get visits when they're in the box. I would think they couldnt get visits in the box but it could be different in Rikers...
Als, as far as visits - I go really early on the weekends and its not so bad and when I go during the week, I go at night because I go after work and ITS THE WORST! but I do it for my baby! I would recommend always going early if you can.

My man just left the box at obcc. They moved him to the Beacon which is the freakin worst! Female Co's are outta control. The worst is married to the captain of the floor and think she can do whatever she wants include harrasing visitors. I told my man, get the heck back to o boy! I loved obcc visits. Ladymurda's right when she says the rude guy behind the glass, damn that man is never in a good mood.

The Beacon is the WORST! I originally thought he was boxed at OBoy, he was in population at Oboy but boxed him @ the Beacon and OMG it has been the WORST! There is this stank ass CO there everybody complains about. This ugly chick that does the searches. There's a pretty one that is mad cool but the other one OMG... the worst. I loved OBCC and I'm so tight they moved him. How can there be such a drastic different between facilities? It's crazy. The visits are alright, the box is ok and I've never had to wait long to see him.

When you're in the box on Rikers you're allowed 1-6min call a day...my man has been in the box since Sept the calls SUCKS but we take what we can get and visiting is sometimes slow depending when you go and what COs are working
