Nearly 230 women and trans people incarcerated at New York City's Rikers Island jail complex will soon be transferred to two Westchester prisons to help ease the crisis at the troubled jail that has had more than 10 deaths this year. Gov.

The two prisons are located across the street from each other in the hamlet of Bedford Hills.
