"New Jersey was severely impacted by the Great Depression.

One-tenth of the New Jersey population was already using New Deal programs by 1933."
1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 13

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. 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. 
1947 · New Jersey State Constitution (Current Version)

Age 26

Other adjustments included: Governors could serve four years (instead of three), and the state legislature would include a 40-member senate and 80-member General Assembly.
