The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable.

Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963.
