For the law-abiding foils who’ve always wondered what incarceration feels like, renovated historic institutions are just what the warden ordered. That curious, behind-bars mystique can be bought by the night-along with room service and flat-screen TVs. In Boston, Beacon Hill’s Charles Street Jail, which once held the Boston Strangler and Malcolm X, recently underwent a $150 million renovation and is now the Liberty Hotel, boasting 300 rooms with oversized windows, touchpad phones, and martini shakers.
In its 139-year history, Boston’s Charles Street Jail housed is share of notable inmates; suffragettes who picketed Woodrow Wilson in favor of the 19th Amendment, a German U-boat captain who killed himself with shards from his own sunglasses, even Frank Abagnale, Jr, - the 1060s con artist played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the Film Catch Me If You Can.
